River search continues in Grand Forks area

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) -- Authorities continue to search for the body of a man they believe might have jumped from a Red River bridge between Grand Forks and East Grand Forks, Minn.

The Grand Forks County Sheriff's Department says a specially trained "cadaver dog" taken onto the water Thursday failed to pick up a scent because of strong winds. Boat crews also have used sonar and drag hooks without success.

The search began Tuesday after a truck driver reported that a person might have jumped from the bridge, and authorities found personal items on the bridge belonging to 19-year-old Delano Gaking.
