Is it only me that find this strange? First he already was in the water, and then he got out and jumped in????
That´s impossible! With strange things like that happening, I would bet he can be anywhere at the same time.
This guy is not going to be easy to find.

However, the most probable scenario is that he got cramp and drowned. Just to stop searching. To late to find him alive in the water now anyway. In about 2-3 days, a body will float to the surface.
