Report of possible body prompts huge response along Mohawk River
Nothing has been found after dozens of police officers rushed to a park along the Mohawk River on Thursday, for a report of a body floating in the water.
The center of activity seemed to be at Blatnick Park, just east of the Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory in Niskayuna. An employee of the lab said they thought they saw a body floating in the water.
It’s the same general area where authorities have been searching for Samantha Humphrey, 14, for more than two months.
Dozens of police vehicles – both marked and unmarked – from state police, county sheriff, along with Schenectady and Niskayuna police were part of Thursday’s search.
A state police helicopter and state police airboat were also there.
