The search for a teenager who went missing on Sunday after jumping into the Belubula River will enter its fourth day on Thursday. The 18-year-old, believed to be from Orange, did not resurface after jumping into the river at Forest Reefs in Burnt Yards. Heavy rain had fallen in the area that day and police said the river was in flood at the time of the incident. A multi-agency search operation began on Sunday, including officers attached to Chifley Police District, PolAir, Police Divers, NSW Ambulance and NSW State Emergency Service. Wednesday afternoon, the man was still nowhere to be found. A NSW Police spokesperson said the river remained swollen, hampering search efforts. Police have closed Junction Reefs to the public while the search continues.
