The Massachusetts State Police’s Underwater Recovery Unit joined local police, firefighters and other agencies in an overnight search of the Saugus River last Friday after receiving an emergency 911 call from a driver on Ballard Street who reported seeing taillights in the water. Police said a vehicle went into the Saugus River in the area of the lobster landing and the bait shop near the Foxhill Bridge.

Police found a stolen van at about 7 a.m. Friday, but there was no body in the van. A search continued for several hours after the van was located. Members of the search party reported that visibility was poor in the murky waters.
