Searchers who say they walked the entire length of the river, all the way to the rail yard did in fact find the blanket, but no baby. A thermal sensing camera was brought to the scene mounted on a drone to search the area with no success. Officials said there was absolutely no evidence that a baby had been thrown into the river with the blanket.
