Westport police search land for missing woman after she was seen on camera at local business
Westport police searched for a 22-year-old woman in the Saugatuck River Thursday.
Police say late Thursday night, it was discovered that the missing woman had exited the river and entered a local business where she was seen on surveillance cameras.
They say Sara Levy was seen in a canoe near the Ruth Steinkraus Bridge in the center of town around 4:30 p.m.
A witness says they briefly lost sight of the canoe, and when he saw it again, it was empty.
At the time Levy was seen in the canoe, the water level was relatively low, so it is possible that she got out of the canoe and walked to shore.
Aside from the Saugatuck River, Westport police were searching nearby land.
Levy is approximately 5 foot 6 inches tall and about 130 pounds with chin-length brown hair.
Anyone with information is asked to call police.
