OGDEN -- The search for missing 4-year-old Corbin Anderson, who fell into the Weber River near the Ogden Kayak Park more than a week ago and is believed to have drowned, has moved to the Great Salt Lake.
Utah Division of Parks personnel used a boat Sunday to look for Corbin's body along the railroad causeway from 12th Street in Ogden about 25 miles across the Great Salt Lake, said Jeremy Shaw, manager of Antelope Island State Park.
Personnel continued to monitor winds Monday afternoon to determine if it would be safe to launch an airboat from Antelope Island to search the northeast side of Fremont Island in Ogden Bay.
It's possible that fast moving currents may have carried Corbin's body from the Ogden Kayak Park off 24th Street and Exchange Road along the Weber River into the Great Salt Lake, said Shaw.
"There is a lot of water coming down the river," he said Monday.
The search in the Great Salt Lake and a massive effort Saturday to rechannel the Weber River so divers could safely re-enter the water near the Kayak Park failed to locate Corbin.
Corbin, who is from Layton, has been missing since slipping off a rock and into the river during a family photo session April 28. His parents and 8-year-old brother were present when the accident happened.
Several hundred people conducted several large scale searches for Corbin in and along the river last week.
However, only a few law officers patrolled the banks Monday, Police Lt. Danielle Croyle said, adding that river conditions have had an impact on search efforts.
"It's cold water, and the channel is unpredictable," she said.
It's disappointing that Saturday's rechanneling of the river didn't find Corbin, said Weber County Sheriff's Lt. Mark Lowther.
"We really thought he would be there," Lowther said.
Divers will continue to monitor the flow and current of the river during the week to determine if it's safe to resume the search.
