GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - Divers from the FBI are searching the Colorado River for a second day as part of an investigation.
Grand Junction police spokeswoman Kate Porras declined to release details Wednesday. She said the search is part of an ongoing local investigation. There have been no arrests in the case. The Daily Sentinel reports that seven Washington, D.C.-based divers used metal detectors to search the river near the Orchard Mesa pedestrian bridge on Tuesday. They searched for about five hours. About a dozen officers including city police, Mesa County sheriff's deputies, and a rescue team participated.
Denver FBI spokesman Dave Joly acknowledged the agency's involvement and referred inquiries to Grand Junction police.
