WASHINGTON COUNTY (KWWL) -

A nighttime river rescue was canceled on Wednesday when two girls were found at a convenience store.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office says it took a call from someone after 9:30 p.m. saying she was floating on the Iowa River with her sister and a friend. She could not find them so she called 911.

Firefighters, other rescue crews and the DNR were all contacted.

About 30 minutes later, the two missing girls showed up at the Riverside Travel Mart.
