ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — BCSO deputies were dispatched to Paseo del Norte and the Rio Grande Friday evening in response to a "jet ski with no rider doing circles in the water."

When deputies arrived, they saw a jet ski going south from the area.

Authorities said the Albuquerque Police Department's Open Space Unit was also on scene assisting with the search for a potential rider who may have been thrown off the jet ski.

In an update, BCSO said they had lost track of the jet ski, but later found it around 7:30 p.m. 

At this time, law enforcement has not received any information on a missing person.
