Swimmer reported missing in Rainy River


Underwater search teams are looking for a swimmer who disappeared on the Canadian side of the Rainy River Sunday night, the Duluth News Tribune reported.

Authorities say two people attempted to swim about 200 feet from a public dock in Emo, located 20 miles west of International Falls, but only one swimmer made it back to the dock. A 27-year-old man was reported missing around 7 p.m., according to WDIO.

Canadian authorities conducted a shoreline search and are patrolling the area with assistance from the Koochiching County Sheriff's Office in Minnesota.

The Ontario Provincial Police underwater search and recovery team was launched Monday.
