Middlebury Police Log: Authorities search creek for woman
Local police, fire and rescue officials searched the area diligently but heard no sounds of anyone in distress in what was a very shallow creek.
Police said the person who made the report to police in this case has a history of “making similar types of calls,” leading to speculation it might have been a false report.
