A 79-year-old river rafter was found safe this weekend, after becoming stranded along the Salinas River. Denman Gerstung had planned to river-raft from the Bradley area to Cattleman Road, in Greenfield. However the river was clogged with debris in some places, causing delays in his journey. He was still travelling at nightfall, and made camp on the riverbank. Helicopters from the C-H-P and the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office were deployed to locate Gerstung, after he was reported missing on Friday night. He was found uninjured on Saturday morning.
