A mystery 911 call: Helicopters, hovercraft assisted in search for unknown source

Email

Emergency responders spent about three hours Wednesday morning in search of a person who may have been in distress.

The incident remains unsolved - no one was located - but it prompted a warning from Beltrami County Sheriff Phil Hodapp about accidental 911 calls.

If an adult accidentally calls 911, Hodapp said, he or she should call back to inform Dispatch of the mistake.
