Three people who were reported missing on the Blue Earth River in Faribault County have been found safe.

According to the Winnebago Police Department the adult and two juveniles were rafting on the river Wednesday afternoon when the storm blew in before they anticipated. When the three didn't arrive at their planned take-out point at a bridge on County Road 12 outside of Winnebago, their parents called the police. The Faribault County Sheriff's Office reported that 19 year old Evan Lamar Jordan of Winnebago and two of his juvenile siblings aged 7 and 11 were dropped off by their mother Beatrice Jordan near the Riverside Cemetery southwest of Winnebago to begin floating the river on an inflatable raft around 1:30 pm.While the Winnebago Fire and Police Department set up an incident command center on the bridge and firefighters searched the banks of the river, they were informed the individuals had been found safe, about 3 or 4 miles away.

They were found walking and another citizen in town picked them up and got them home. When the storm hit they had climbed up on a bank and took shelter.

Other agencies that assisted on the call were Martin County Sheriff's Office and Blue Earth County Sheriff's Dive Team,Minnesota State Patrol,Minnesota D N R,Winnebago Ambulance and the Amboy Fire Department.
