22 firefighters and 40 police officers searched the area of Eagle Creek, south of McCarty Street near Tibbs Avenue.
Crews searched on foot along the bank, as well as in the water and from the air in a police helicopter. Crews reported finding nothing and a decision was made around 10:50 p.m. to call off the search due to dark conditions.
