A 19-year-old California man was still missing late Sunday, a day after he was swept over a waterfall while swimming in Yosemite National Park.

Aleh Kalman of Sacramento was swimming in the Merced River during a church trip about 3 p.m. Saturday (6 p.m. ET) when he was washed away down the 600-foot Nevada Fall, park officials told NBC station KCRA of Sacramento.

Search teams and helicopters combed the area for Kalman until darkness fell and resumed their effort Sunday.

Kalman's family said it preferred not to comment to preserve its privacy.
