OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City firefighters spent nearly five hours searching the North Canadian River for a possible drowning victim before the man was found safe at home.

The man who reported the possible drowning has been arrested for making a false police report.

Neither man’s name was released.

Battalion Chief Brian Stanaland told reporters that a man reported a friend had gone into the river and disappeared shortly after 4 p.m. Saturday.

Firefighters using a raft searched the waters that are swift and full of debris from recent storms. The search ended shortly after 9 p.m. when the missing man was found safe.
