The Endicott Police Department says officers received a 911 call around 2 a.m. that a person was reported missing along the north shoreline of the Susquehanna River.

“We’re using a type of sonar this morning, tomorrow, the state police have a different type of sonar that can be used, so that’ll be brought in, and we’ll search the river with that. Hopefully it’ll give us a little bit better of a picture of what’s going on underneath the water,” said Chief Garey.
