Search ends for Forest City boy


The search for a boy that reportedly fell into a northern Iowa river has been called off.

A caller reported seeing a child between the ages of 7 and 10 fall into the Winnebago River in Forest City on Sunday around 1 p.m.

The search of the river ended Sunday evening. Authorities say if the boy was in that part of the river, rescue workers would have found him.

No children had been reported missing in the area, and officials visited nearby homes to see if all the children were accounted for. Officials say they are going to assume the boy is at home safe but is too scared to tell anyone about falling into the water.
