Teen not missing in Spokane River after all

Last night the Spokane Valley Fire Department's swift water rescue team and the Spokane County Sheriff's Office helicopter spent hours scouring the Spokane River after a group of teens reported that a friend was missing after he fell in the river east of Harvard. The teen wasn't wearing a life vest and after hours of fruitless searching crews had to abandon the search when it got dark. But word has come this morning that the teen was safe at home the whole time. Click here for the report from this morning's paper and here for the update.
