Alleged calls for help prompted a search Sunday for a man in a marshy pond near Paul Lake, five miles west of Perham.

Multiple witnesses reported hearing the sound of an adult male's voice calling for help near the marsh, according to the Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office.


The sheriff's office conducted the search, along with water patrol and area citizens. Watercrafts and thermal imaging were used in the search, but did not uncover anything.
