SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Authorities in Oregon are searching for a woman who went missing while floating with friends on the Willamette River. The Polk County Sherriff's Office says the 37-year-old from Vancouver, Washington, and her friends overturned after running into the root ball of a tree. The Statesman Journal reported Sunday Tracy Allen was wearing a life jacket. She hasn't been seen since she went into the water Saturday afternoon south of Independence. Officials say the current was strong at the time.
