Big Search Held Near Fruitvale Bridge

Members of the Alameda Fire Department, U.S. Coast Guard and Alameda County Sheriff’s Office spent much of Thursday, October 28, trying to find the body of a supposed missing person reported out of Oakland.

The emergency squads, including divers and water-based crew, combed the area around the Fruitvale Bridge for most of Thursday.

Despite the extensive search conducted on both sides of the estuary, no body was found in the area, sources told Alameda Journal staff.

During the search, several members of the Alameda Fire Department were wearing pink AFD shirts in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
