Lexington police and firefighters were searching the Kentucky River at Valley View on Monday for evidence after receiving a tip, a police official said.
Sgt. Ann Welch said police received a call Saturday that there might be "evidence of a possible crime in or around the river."
Several detectives with the Robbery/Homicide Unit were at the river, near the Valley View Ferry. As of 4 p.m., nothing had been found, she said.
Welch was did not say what detectives were looking for, but she said the department investigates calls that suggest a crime occurred.
The Jessamine County Sheriff's Office and Nicholasville police were assisting in the search. The Valley View Ferry connects Tates Creek Road in Fayette and Jessamine counties with Madison County.
