From the Alameda County Fire Department

On Wednesday, June 8, 2011 at 3:28PM Alameda County Firefighters, the San Leandro Police Department (SLPD) and the US Coast Guard responded to a report of a fully clothed individual that walked out to shoulder-height water in the shoreline of the San Leandro Marina.

As part of a Unified Command with the US Coast Guard and SLPD, under the direction of a Battalion Chief and the Assistant Chief of Special Operations, ACFD Rescue Boat 11 and Inflatable Rescue Boat (IRB) 10 were immediately launched to help search for the individual, who was seen approximately 200 yards from the shoreline.

While the two ACFD boats scoured the shoreline, the helicopter from the US Coast Guard conducted a search from the air and SLPD officers led the search on land with the assistance of ACFD Truck 9.

An air, land and water search was conducted for approximately 45 minutes in and along the Marina shoreline area and all units were unable to locate anyone. Search efforts were suspended at approximately 5PM.
