Police Search After Suspicious Call
The search is over, and it turned up nothing.
According to Gainesville police, two separate calls came in around 7:45 Tuesday night; calls that were suspicious enough for a helicopter, and K-9 units to be called out to search the area around southwest 42nd street and 24th avenue immediately.
"He was walking, he was on foot, and the caller feel that he might have gone into the woods," said Sgt. Chuck Reddick.
Other police sources tell TV20, the callers saw a large man carrying what appeared to be a rolled up rug, possibly with feet sticking out on one end.
Police were unable to locate anything that would raise suspicion of any criminal activity involved, and ended the search around 3:00 PM Wednesday.
Detective Ray Barber says over the next couple days, police will carefully monitor any missing person or runaway reports.
