Rockford Fire and Police say they have located the man believed to have fallen into the Rock River off of the Chestnut Street bridge Thursday. He is alive and uninjured.

A search last night ended without finding anyone. That search resumed again today but was suspended after authorities learned that a man was found at a Rockford residence matching the description of the man they were searching for.

He was interviewed and it was determined he was the one that prompted the search. He was uninjured, but was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.
