SAVANNAH, GA (April 11, 2013): Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police and other law enforcement agencies between Tybee Island and Charleston, SC are searching under bridges for a boat reported to have capsized with three people on board.

Coast Guard Station Tybee alerted Metro about 9 p.m. that it had received an automated telephone call around indicating that the boat has turned over beneath a bridge. But the location could not be narrowed down more closely.

The Coast Guard sometimes receives such calls and the call is being taken seriously.

SCMPD is searching under all bridges while on patrol, as are other agencies.

Anyone with information that could help pinpoint the location is asked to call the Coast Guard via radio or at (912) 786-5440 or Emergency 911 immediately.
