KENNEWICK, WA - Investigators say they found no body in Zintel Canyon Thursday morning and called off their search after an hour.

Crews have searched the area several times after Kennewick police received a call Tuesday night about a body in the water.

UPDATE/KENNEWICK, WA - Kennewick Police are using all of their available resources to search for what a 15-year-old claimed to be a body.

Officers say a teenage girl was walking through Zintel Canyon when she thought she saw a body in the middle of the night.

Police tried to search the area Tuesday night, but didn't have a specific area.

So they came back Wednesday afternoon with the teen to narrow down where the body could be.

While that search turned up nothing, Sgt.. Randy Maynard isn't ruling out that a body could be what the teen saw, "it could be any number of things, we're not ruling out that it's a deceased body. We don't have any unaccounted for missing persons at this point, but that's not to say it couldn't be possible."

Officers stopped searching just before 6PM on Wednesday, because the area they were looking in was too marshy.

They've asked the Kennewick Irrigation District to reduce the flow of water through Zintel Canyon so officers can start up their search again Thursday morning.

------------------------------

UPDATE/KENNEWICK, WA - Kennewick Police have finished searching the Zintel Canyon area for a body today. The location they've been searching is a marshy area and very dense.

Officers say they've asked the Kennewick Irrigation District to reduce the water in the canyon, and then officers will continue their search tomorrow.

Police said they received the call from a 15-year-old girl about a body in the water of the Canyon Tuesday night, but they didn't have a specific location.

On Wednesday, police say they were able to get ahold of the girl and meet with her. That's when the girl was able to point the officers in the right area.

Police also add that they have no active missing person reports that they are aware of.
