Tayside Police has released a statement after reports of someone in the River Tay.
A massive emergency search was undertaken on Wednesday night after a member of the public thought they spotted someone in the river while driving over the South Street bridge.
A multi-agency response was scrambled following the report, which saw officers from Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue, the Scottish Ambulance Service and HM Coastguard attend the scene.
HM Coastguard helicopters were scrambled from both Prestwick and Inverness bases to assist in the search, while rescue teams from St Andrews, Carnoustie and South Queensferry were deployed. The Broughty Ferry RNLI lifeboat also attended.
Despite the number of rescuers on the scene, police stood the operation down at 9.20pm.
A Tayside Police Division statement today said: “Regarding the incident at the River Tay in Perth yesterday evening, after an extensive search of the area nothing was found, and we are content this was a false alarm with good intent.
“Thank you to everyone in the area for your patience and understanding whle we conducted our enquiries.”
