Search crews find body in Red River near 52nd Avenue South

FARGO - Officials who were looking in the Red River for a Fargo woman who disappeared on Saturday found a body in the river today near 52nd Avenue South.

Lt. Pat Claus said police were notified at 9:45 a.m. that search crews found a body about six blocks north of where the woman's car was located near the Living Lab on 58th Avenue South.

There's no way of immediately knowing how long it will take to identify the body because it depends on a wide variety of factors, Claus said.

Members of Valley Water Rescue and the Fargo Fire Department began looking for the woman on Saturday after her husband reported her missing at 11:30 a.m.

The missing woman has had a history of depression, police said. A bloodhound tracked her scent into the river, and footprints were found leading into the water.
