FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- The Fort Wayne Fire Department said they will not resume the water rescue started Wednesday night near Northside High School.
Adam O'Conner with FWFD told FOX 55 the water rescue will not be resumed. Officer Michael Joyner with the Fort Wayne Police Department said they have not found anyone in the water or otherwise.
The water rescue was first called Wednesday night around 6:00 p.m. when a woman told police her boyfriend was on the bridge near Northside High School and was threatening to jump.
A photo of the alleged incident was given to police, but the railings in the photo did not match the railings on the bridge near the high school.
The water search was called off around 7:45 p.m. Wednesday when it got too dark.
FOX 55 is working to find out more information on the man involved in the incident and his whereabouts.
