Searchers find clothes, but no person, in Wisconsin River

WISCONSIN DELLS (WKOW) -- The Columbia County Sheriff Department's dive team searched the Wisconsin River early Thursday morning after clothes were found in the water.

The Wisconsin Dells Police Department says around 1:40 a.m., it received a report from someone at the Santorini Village Hotel who said they heard people outside the hotel indicating someone was in the river.

Authorities searched the area with a rescue boat and found several items of clothing near the River Walk Pub. They did not find any identification and they were not able to determine whether someone was actually in the water.

Here's a police description of the clothing: Black and white Ecko Unltd brand jacket, Roadblock brand denim pants, navy and white Nike shorts and blue and black basketball shoes.
