COPY-Winneshiek Co. Authorities searching river after report of "man in water in distress"

Authorities in Winneshiek County are searching for a person who may have gone under water.

Rescue teams from the Winneshiek County Sheriff's Office, Decorah Police and Fire and the Iowa State Patrol searched the Upper Iowa River in Decorah Saturday night after getting reports of a man in distress.

Crews stopped searching Saturday night when it got too dark but are back on the scene Sunday morning.

This follows drownings on the Iowa River near Iowa City and the Cedar River near Cedar Falls last week in which two men drowned.
