LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – Rescue crews spent the evening searching for a child in the Grand River.

A call came in just before 7:00 p.m. that there was a child struggling in the Grand River near Fulton Park, just west of Waverly Rd. and south of Holmes.

A dive team searched the water around the park, but unfortunately bad weather made diving dangerous and the search had to be called off.
