Crews search for owner of overturned boat on White River

Officials: Not clear if anybody was in boat

INDIANAPOLIS - Authorities were searching for the owner of an overturned boat on the White River on the city’s west side Tuesday afternoon.

Rescue crews searched the river between West 16th and West 10th streets for possible victims just before 4 p.m., officials with the Indianapolis Fire Department said.

It was not clear if anybody was actually in the fishing boat at the time of the incident.

Officials said churning water at the bottom of the dam was making it too dangerous for divers to go into the water.

Anyone with information about the boat's owner should call 911.
