CINCINNATI - Crews searched part of the Ohio River Monday night after receiving a report of a possible drowning.
Authorities in Kentucky say they received an anonymous phone call that someone had jumped into the river and never made it to shore.
The caller told police they saw the individual swim about halfway across the river before disappearing from sight.
Cincinnati fire and water rescue crews responded to Glenn Alley and Hazen Street around 6:30 p.m. and began searching the river for a possible victim.
Police say when they attempted to call the phone number back, there was no answer. Officials told 9 On Your Side the source turned out not to be credible.
Cincinnati fire and water rescue crews searched a half mile up the river and a half mile down river. The search was called off around 8:30 p.m.
No other details on the incident are available at this time.
9 On Your Side and WCPO.com will update this story once more details are available.

Any time a starting pitcher steps into the batter's box before he stands on the mound, he's in pretty good shape. Mike Leake enjoyed that luxury Tuesday night.
