Danville Life Saving Crew Searches for Woman in River

Danville, VA -- The Danville Life Saving Crew sent two boats into the Dan River Wednesday afternoon to search for a missing woman.

Life Saving Crew officials say the woman has been missing since last Thursday. She lives near the river and loves to be by the water.

Danville Police asked the Life Saving Crew if they would check the Dan River. The Crew says they have to do this kind of search only a few times a year. They say they hoped they wouldn't find her, because if they did, it usually wouldn't mean she was still be alive.
