Rescue workers searched Monday for a missing man who was feared drowned in the Red River near a bridge that links the Grand Cities.

Two men, who said they're friends of the missing man, told police all three had swam across the river from Grand Forks to East Grand Forks, just downstream from the Kennedy Bridge. But on the return, they lost track of their friend.
