WEST SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

A search of the Connecticut River took place Saturday morning by firefighters after West Springfield received reports of a "jumper." 

The call came in just after 8 a.m. Saturday morning, the West Springfield Fire Department confirmed with Western Mass News.

"Sounded like she was wearing a baseball hat and a jacket," noted the dispatcher.

Emergency crews searched the CT River between Agawam and West Springfield.

Our crew saw the fire department along the shores of the river on River St. right near the bridge.  

Just before 10 a.m. the West Springfield Fire Department told us they were no longer searching. 

"Unfounded on the female who reportedly jumped," the dispatcher told us. 

Agawam, Springfield, and West Springfield all took part in the search.
