Rescuers Search For Fallen Hiker At Feather Falls

OROVILLE, Calif. (AP) – Emergency crews in Butte County continue to search for a hiker who fell down a 400-foot waterfall. The Oroville Mercury-Register ¬†reports the fall happened at Feather Falls in Plumas National Forest on Thursday afternoon. The Butte County Sheriff’s office identified the missing man as Matthew Nisleit, 23, of Brownsville. Crews searched the water and the base of the waterfall but they were unable to locate Nisleit. The search team had to call off the search Thursday night because the water became too rapid. It resumed Friday. Witnesses say that the Nisleit fell and that this wasn’t a case of a jump gone bad. Feather falls is the second tallest waterfall in California.
