Alexandria Police are looking for a woman who may have attempted suicide in the Red River.

During the search, they found the body of a man – which they think is unrelated.

The APD posted a release on their Facebook page about the incident. They say they’re getting help from the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office, the Alexandria Fire Department and Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.

The search has been extensive and included sonar, search and rescue dogs, the release states.

During the search, approximately a mile down river, the body of a man was found. He appears to be an elderly, white male. As yet, there are no indications that his body is related to the initial report, the release states.

The investigating is on-going, police say.
