TROY MILLS, Iowa — The Linn County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched Saturday evening to search for a woman who disappeared while tubing on the Wapsipinicon River near Troy Mills.

Using boats they looked for her downstream, while a crowd gathered to watch from the bridge above.

Authorities hesitated to call the search a recovery operation, but were concentrating their efforts near the dam.

KCRG-TV9 will have more information coming up at 10.
