KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A homeless woman who was the subject of a long search in a Kansas City river turned up safe many hours later.

The woman’s boyfriend told authorities the woman fell into the fast-moving Blue River during a storm around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Police and firefighters looked for the woman Wednesday night and for seven hours again Thursday.

KMBC-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1zYGntb ) the woman appeared at a relative’s home later Thursday, saying she had grabbed a tree branch in the river and pulled herself out. Family members told the station the woman was doing well.
