Empty canoe prompts search
The search that was reported in the area of the Terrytown Boat Launch Wednesday evening was prompted by a canoe that washed up on the river, said Tim Schaeffer, spokesman for the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission.
While the owner of the canoe has not been found, there have been no reports of missing persons, he said.
The canoe was found south of the Terrytown Boat Launch, on the river.
Officers of the Fish and Boat Commission searched the river after the canoe was found, he said.
The officers will continue doing routine patrols of the river, he noted.
