posted in: News | 8

22 year old Nigerian man Uyobong Ukonne
(pictured above) has been missing in New Jersey
since last Sunday May 25th after drowning on a
rafting trip with friends on the Delaware River,
police say.
Uyo, who had just graduated from New Jersey
City University with a degree in chemistry, had
been rafting down the river at 1pm with friends
when he took off his life jacket and jumped into
the water to swim. His friends say after he went
into the river, he surfaced once, sank again and
His friends said he’d told them he wasn’t a good
swimmer before attempting to swim in the 20-
foot, cold river (pictured right). Police say search
& rescue began almost immediately but he
wasn’t found.
Since Sunday divers have been combing through
the river foot by foot searching for Uyo, who is
now presumed drowned, Joe Hinkes, the chief
ranger of the Upper Delaware Scenic &
Recreational River said. As of today, his body has
still not been found.
Uyo had lived in the US for just six years. See his
