A woman, reported missing and possibly in distress, in the waters below Pensacola Dam, was found on Monday, July 31.
Melanie Earl, spokesman for the Grand River Dam Authority, said the woman, whom she describes as being in her 20s, was swimming with friends near Eagle's Point, along the river below Pensacola Dam, when she was reported missing on Sunday, July 30.
Earl said six members of GRDA's police department spent much of Sunday evening searching for the woman, utilizing at least two boats and side scanners.
The search was reduced to three officers - those already on patrol - during the overnight hours. At approximately 5 a.m., on Monday, July 31, a full-search resumed.
At some point on Monday morning, Earl said, authorities discovered the woman had exited the water - away from the group she was swimming with - and met up with a group of friends.
She did not know until sometime Monday, that people thought she was missing. Earl did not know if the woman, whose name was not released, would be responsible for the costs of the search.
Eagle's Point is an area below Pensacola Dam, where people often gather to swim, fish and watch eagles.
