The 30-year-old Crookston man went missing about 2 p.m., said Crookston Police Chief Paul Biermaier. He was found unharmed shortly before 7 p.m. at his home.

Police were notified that he was missing and suicidal “through a medical facility,” Biermaier said. He would not give further details because of personal information relating to the man.

The search involved a U.S. Customs and Border Protection helicopter, a boat searching the Red Lake River and officers on all-terrain vehicles.

The man’s cellphone was tracked, and his wife suggested locations for officers to check, Biermaier said. After being found, the man was transported for a medical check.

Agencies assisting included the Crookston Fire Department, Polk County Sheriff’s Office, Crookston Police Department Reserve, Pennington County Sheriff’s Office, Crookston Area Ambulance and two Border Patrol units.
