Update from the BFD:
We have concluded a water-related operation south of the Beloit dam on the Rock River with nothing located.
We were called to the area at 7:20 a.m. after an individual reported seeing something in the river. It was unknown what was seen, so we conducted a search of the river and used sonar technology to determine if there was something in the river. Nothing was located during this operation after extensive efforts to ensure the area was thoroughly checked.
This operation included Beloit Fire Department, Beloit Police, South Beloit Fire Department, and Rock County Sheriff’s Office. Thank you all for your assistance.
