Police: No One Found After Report of Person in Icy Pond

Authorities received an initial report of a hockey player with a black bag and hockey stick that had fallen through the ice

Massachusetts authorities said no one was found in an icy bog following a two-hour search of the water after they received a report of a person who fell through the ice.

Two dozen divers were unable to find anyone in the water of the Marshfield bog after receiving an initial report of a hockey player on the ice with a black bag and hockey stick, according to the town's fire chief.

Divers weren't able to find the items described in the 911 call, either, after searching for a few hours.

Marshfield Fire Chief William Hocking said authorities are assuming that if someone was able to get themselves out of the water, which only reached four feet deep, they got themselves out.

Authorities, who initially confirmed to NBC10 Boston that they had received a report of a missing child in a pond, responded to the bog off of Main Street around noon on Thursday.

Aerial footage from NBC10 Boston's Sky Ranger helicopter showed divers in the water alongside a large hole in the ice. Numerous emergency vehicles lined the road beside the body of water.

Massachusetts State Police confirmed they also had a helicopter assisting in the search.
