(KMOV) – A kayaker who went missing on the Mississippi River Thursday evening has been found.

According to police, the woman was kayaking on the river about 10 miles east of the branch two marina in north St. Charles County when she went missing.

The victim’s daughter did not hear from her mother and called authorities.

The Missouri Water Patrol had several crews on the river searching and the St. Louis County Police Department was looking for her from a helicopter in the air.

Witnesses at the scene said the woman was rescued and later handcuffed and put in the back of a police car. That had not been confirmed by authorities.

Additional details were not immediately available.
