Firefighters Search River After Un-Manned Kayak Found

Posted: Updated:

Fargo Firefighters spent about an hour searching the Red River this morning after they got a call of a an "un-manned" kayak in the water.

The call came in around 10:30 this morning and crews searched the river by boat from 32nd to 52nd Ave. South, looking for anyone that could have fallen out and been in trouble.

No one was found in the river and it's believed that high river levels washed the kayak away from a dock or shore that may have been left un-secured.

Fargo Fire Battalion Chief, Dane Carley, says keeping boats secure is crucial as river levels continue to rise. "This is the second time in two or three weeks that we've been out here for stuff that got washed away, that looked like someone could have fallen out of so it. We send a lot of recourses to a river call to make sure we can help somebody who's in trouble."

Fargo Police are seeking the public's assistance in identifying the kayak, it's a blue SunDolphin Aruba 10, the boat wasn't registered but its hull number is J0K01346K213. If you have any information or know who the boat belongs to, call Fargo Police at 701-241-1437.
