Missing man found early Wednesday

A 47-year-old Jamestown man went missing for about 13 hours Tuesday, according to the Jamestown Police Department.

Jamestown Police Chief Scott Edinger said Rory Rupp, who lives at Bethel Four Acres, 1404 1st Ave. N, was reported missing around 10:20 p.m. Tuesday. Edinger said he was notified about Rupp around 10:30 p.m. He was last seen by staff at Bethel Four Acres around noon on Tuesday.

Edinger said the Stutsman County Dive Rescue Team was called in around 11 p.m. Tuesday due to Bethel Four Acres being close to the James River.

“He (Rupp) had limited mobility, and we weren’t sure if he may have fallen in the river,” Edinger said about calling out the dive team.

Rupp was found walking in the 200 block of 1st Avenue South around 2:25 a.m. Edinger said Rupp was not injured and returned to his residence.
