1:10pm Wednesday 4th December 2013 in News
A POLICE operation is underway to track down a woman and her dog who may have got into difficulty in the River Tone.
Officers received a call from a teenager reporting an incident in which she had seen a woman entering the river at around 9am on Monday (December 2).
The incident is thought to have happened in the area of Bathpool Bridge and sparked a search by officers, including the use of a police helicopter and the underwater search team, but no trace of the woman was found.
A search was also made of the area between the river and the motorway but no clothing was found and no trace of a dog found.
A police spokesman said: "We are keen to track down anyone who might have been in the Bathpool Bridge area on Monday morning at about 9am or the woman who is reported to have gone into the water looking for her dog."
Anyone with information should contact police at Taunton on 101.
