Police search for capsized boat in Savannah area

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Authorities in the Savannah area say they've been searching for a boat reported to have capsized with three people on board.

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police said they're working with other law enforcement agencies between Tybee Island in Georgia and Charleston, S.C. in the search.

U.S. Coast Guard officials alerted Savannah metro police around 9 p.m. Thursday that it had received an automated telephone call around indicating that the boat has turned over beneath a bridge.

But the location could not be narrowed down more closely.
