GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Grand Forks police say they have more information indicating that a person reported to be struggling in the Red River last week is fine.

People fishing in the area last Friday told authorities that a male who had entered the river appeared to have been swept away by the current. Authorities called off the search after four days and no reports of any missing persons.

Police say a person called the police department Wednesday night claiming to be the person who was in the river. Authorities say the person didn’t give a name but provided details consistent with the incident.

Police say they now consider the matter resolved.
