CELINA — Emergency response crews responded to the western shore of Grand Lake St. Marys, near the lighthouse in Celina in response to calls of suspicious activity concerning an adult and a child.
According to a news release from the Celina Police Department, initially the caller advised a subject had placed a child on the shoreline, but a short time later reported that the child had been placed in the water.
Emergency crews responded and found people in the area of the report, but no one that matched the reported activity. Contact with people in the area found no witnesses to an adult and child matching the description being in the area near the lighthouse.
To insure no one was in danger, emergency responders checked the shore line, both in and out of the water, for signs of a victim of any type, but found nothing suspicious.
The original emergency call came in at 3:48 p.m. and crews were on the scene until 5:12 p.m. Video recordings from a nearby security camera had background views of the area and revealed that no one matching the description given was in the area before or after the emergency calls were placed to Central Dispatch. Once those recordings were obtained and reviewed the emergency responders were released from the scene.
