Man missing in White River

INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - First responders are searching the White River in Indianapolis for a man who may have fallen into the water.

People standing near the river called 911 at about 6 p.m. Saturday, reporting seeing what they believed was a man on a canoe fall in the water.

Police were also contacted by a woman who reported that she couldn't find her fiance, who had been launching on the White River at about the same time.

An empty canoe was found nearby a short time later.

Searchers focused on water near a ramp west of Burdsall Parkway.

Police have suspended the search for the evening.
