Authorities have called off the search for a Redding man who jumped into the Sacramento River while running away from police officers.

Sergeant Aaron Maready with Redding PD says Darryl Cunningham was last seen Saturday night, struggling in the water.

An officer had approached the 48-year-old, who was reportedly fighting with a woman. He ran before jumping off a bridge.

A helicopter and boat aided in the search, which was first called off because of heavy rain.
