Authorities called off a search of Panther Hollow Lake about 7 p.m. Saturday when their hunt for a possible drowning victim yielded nothing.
A person called 911 about 5 p.m. to report a pair of shoes and socks lying next to a hole in the ice covering the Schenley Park lake, said Rich Linn, district chief/operations chief of River Rescue.
A diver from River Rescue waded into the shallow lake and used a 12-foot pole to search a wide arc from the hole in the ice.
“He felt the bottom, in the middle and then up against the ice in case anyone was floating,” Linn said.
No witnesses reported seeing anyone go into the water, dispatchers said.
