ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A dive team with the Albany Fire Department searched the Flint River near the downtown River Walk for about an hour and a half Monday.

Officials said they were assisting the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

The team began their search around 1:30 p.m. and were said to be dealing with swift currents as they went.

While they would not say what they were searching for, divers said the work was also good training for future emergency situations.
