GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Authorities in the Grand Forks area searched about 3 ½ hours for a person in the Red River before calling off the operation.

Police say some anglers reported about 1:15 a.m. Friday that they had seen a male enter the river near a bridge and be swept away by the current.

A regional water rescue team and a regional drone team were among the groups who looked for the person.

The search was called off about 4:45 a.m. Police asked anyone with information to contact them. They also issued a reminder that swimming in the river is prohibited.
