Reports of a downed paraglider in Norrisville launched an intensive search Sunday night.

The search came to a close after the pilot walked into the Norrisville fire station unscathed.

Around 8:40 p.m. Sunday, several people reported a spiraling paraglider or ultra light machine in Norrisville, according to Lt. Christina Presberry, spokesperson for the Harford County Sheriff’s Office.

Several peopled called and walked directly into the Norrisville fire station to report the incident, fearing the paraglider had crashed somewhere in the area of Channel and West Heaps roads, according to Rich Gardiner, spokesman for Harford Volunteer Fire and EMS Association.

Fire and emergency personnel conducted a land and air search, Gardiner said.

Baltimore County and Maryland State Police helicopters searched the area by air.

The search was stopped at 11:30 p.m. for the safety of the search party.

At 6 a.m. the search resumed. Members of Civil Air Patrol conducted a foot search while other personnel searched on ATVs and horseback, Gardiner said.

Around 10:30 a.m. Monday a man walked into the Norrisville fire station where the search command was set up and said he was the pilot everyone was looking for, Gardiner said.

His aircraft matched the description of the paraglider in distress and the search was called off, according to Gardiner and Presberry.
