    I don't know

    Unfortunately, recent news suggests a possibility, but it could be something else.

    The Thaw

    There were ice floes on and off from Congress/Summer streets to the harbor, but the part from Summer to Gillette has been iced over pretty consistently for over a month. Ice formed and collected under the bridge structures as well.

    This is the first chance they have had to do a complete search of the area, given the disappearance of a young man during that time. Sunday is a good time to do this, as it is quiet and won't attract as many spectators.

    This was an emergency response to something. Not a planned search for that missing man. Sometimes, you should keep quiet when you don't know what is happening.

    It's not the missing kid from the North End

    A backpack was found in the vicinity of the bridge. Inside the backpack were items that indictated that an individual might have gone into the water. Nothing beyond that.
