KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A homeless woman who was the subject of a long search in a Kansas City river turned up safe many hours later.
The woman’s boyfriend told authorities the woman fell into the fast-moving Blue River during a storm around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Police and firefighters looked for the woman Wednesday night and for seven hours again Thursday.
KMBC-TV reports the woman appeared at a relative’s home later Thursday, saying she had grabbed a tree branch in the river and pulled herself out. Family members told the station the woman was doing well.
