MINTO, N.D. (AP) — Authorities in the northeast North Dakota community of Minto are searching for a man whose pickup truck is believed to have been swept away from a water-covered gravel road.

The Grand Forks Herald reports that the driver, who was traveling alone, called for help about 7 p.m. Monday, reporting that his pickup was washed off the road by a strong current in a coulee.

When Minto and Walsh County crews arrived on scene, the truck was visible but there was no sign of the driver. Authorities have not identified him.

Minto responder Annette Glomstad says a helicopter from U.S. Customs and Border Protection was brought in Tuesday morning to resume the search. An airboat and a rescue diving team from Grand Forks were also expected to assist.
