CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- Authorities have identified the two people who capsized in a kayak on Indian Creek Monday afternoon.

According to Greg Buelow, spokesperson for Cedar Rapids police and fire, 30-year-old Samantha Marie Conley and 34-year-old John Michael Conley were the two people who capsized in a kayak on Indian Creek at around 4:15 p.m. Monday.

Samantha was treated and released from Mercy Medical Center. John is still missing.

Crews continued searching for him Tuesday morning. After beginning the day using boats, they switched to land and drone based operations due to dangerous condition on Indian Creek. The search area included the point where Indian Creek empties into the Cedar River.

The Cedar Rapids Fire Department has been assisted by the Linn County Sheriff's Office, the Linn County Emergency Management Agency, the Johnson County Dive Team and the Salvation Army. Buelow says 35 volunteers are also helping with the search.
