Red Deer Emergency Services and RCMP are searching the Red Deer River after someone reported a body in the water.

At about 2 p.m. today, a driver on the northbound 49th Avenue bridge reported seeing what she thought to be a body floating in the river.

RCMP cannot confirm if it was a body.

Police and Emergency Services are on scene trying to confirm what the person reported.

Police, fire and ambulance vehicles were set up at both the Gaetz Avenue and 67th Street bridges as part of the search.

The Red Deer Emergency Services boat was launched to help with the search.

The Red Deer River is still running fast and high after the upstream flooding last week. Many areas around the river have been closed off for safety reasons.
