Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Rescue crews were called to the Red River again today about a person in the water, but this time, they called off their search.

An employee at the Fargo Country Club found an abandoned bicycle and thought he heard a call for help.

Police and firefighters from both sides of the river searched with two rescue boats and scoured the shoreline on foot.

They found no signs of anyone in the river.

Assistant Chief Gary Lorenz- Fargo Fire Department: "There was no indication that anybody had gone into the river or out of the river. We couldn't see any slide marks, track marks. The river has subsided now, it's fairly muddy, so it's pretty easy to see if something had gone into the river, but we didn't see any indication of that."

This is the second recent call of a person in the river that came in hours after the incident supposedly happened.

At six, find out how that delay can complicate a search.
