A woman called police after her husband and 16-year-old son did not return from a fishing trip near the Pacific Palisades. A search and rescue operation started Tuesday after noon, but was suspended overnight. Police say they do not believe the two men drowned, but are performing the final search of the river.

Authorities believe the two men left the area voluntarily, but neither the father or son have been seen since yesterday.

   New warnings are being issued to stay away from rain-swollen rivers and streams.  That after three men who'd gone fishing in the Meramec River had to be rescued Sunday morning.  

   The Saline Valley Fire Protection District received a call around 9:30 a.m. from someone who saw the men's thrown into the water when their canoe flipped.  

   Saline Valley Fire Chief Bob Dunn says while crews were en route to the scene, they got a second call.  This one was from one of the men in the water who told them they were approaching the Highway 21 bridge.  

   Chief Dunn says rescue crews dropped a line from the bridge in an effort to fish them out of the swift-moving water.  "We were here with a rope and we watched them go underneath the bridge," Dunn said.  "One of them was able to grab hold of the rope that we had thrown to them.  The other two couldn't."

   The other two men managed to grab onto some low-hanging trees.  They were rescued by boat.
