By WRCB Staff
Reports of a possible body in the Hiwassee River turned out to be nothing, after hours of searching on the water. Officers with the Bradley County Sheriff's Office, McMinn County Sheriff's Office, Charleston Police and the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency spent time nearly 5-hours on the river after getting calls of someone floating in the water near the Charleston Boat Dock.
Although there was no real evidence that a body was in the water, the search was initiated as a precautionary measure.
