Pair found unharmed after search in Plymouth
PLYMOUTH – Two people reported missing in or around the Pemigewasset River late Tuesday night were found unharmed.
Rescue crews were called to the river at 9:50 p.m. after a report of one person missing in the river. Soon after, more area fire departments were called as police and firefighters determined that a second person was missing.
At 10:15 p.m., the Pemi W.E.T. Team, a group of divers from area fire departments that are part of the Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid system, was called to search the waters. Meanwhile, other firefighters searched land areas near the river.
The searchers assembled at a staging area set up in the Plymouth District Court parking lot on Green Street. Rescue crews from Plymouth, Ashland, Campton-Thornton and other area fire departments responded to the scene.
Meanwhile, throngs of students from the Plymouth State University campus, which sits just above Green Street, arrived and watched.
Sometime after 11 p.m., the search was called off. It was not clear late Tuesday night whether divers actually entered the river before the pair was located.
Firefighters at the scene confirmed that both people were located.
“Both individuals were safe,” said Plymouth Fire Department Lt. Brian Tobine. “They were never in the water, as it turned out.”
Tobine would not release further details, referring questions to the Plymouth Police Department, which is in charge of the case.
“It's now a police matter,” Tobine said.
Police said further details would be available on Wednesday.
