A local man was found safe after reportedly going missing while swimming at Pillsbury Crossing.

On Friday, June 5th around 9:18 p.m. the Riley County Police Department Emergency Dispatch Center received a call stating a man in his 20s was swimming with a group of friends and could not be found.

RCPD, Riley County EMS, Manhattan Fire Department, Wildlife and Parks, Riley County Rural Fire, and others worked for nearly two hours searching the area for the man.

Just after 11 p.m. emergency services made contact with the missing man, safe at his home.

Thank you to all of the agencies who assisted in this search. We are thankful this was just confusion between friends and the man is safe.
