DEERPARK, New York (WABC) -- Rescuers have resumed their search for a father and son who went missing in a river in Orange County.

Eyewitnesses say the 46-year-old jumped in Saturday to save his 8-year-old son when he went into Neversink River at Oakland Valley Campground in Deerpark.

Both the father and son were swept downstream.

Rescuers called off the search for the night due to weather.
