- If his body is not found today, police officials will evaluate how the search for Officer Mike Partin should continue, Assistant Chief Bill Dorsey said.
Police, divers and volunteers started searching the Ohio River a week ago after Officer Partin fell off the Clay Wade Bailey Bridge while helping another officer chase a suspect.
''It's very frustrating,'' Assistant Chief Dorsey said Saturday. ''We are going through all of the normal feelings of anger, grief and loss, and yet we can't let that get in the way. . . . We have a body to recover, a city to police and a community to protect.''
Saturday's good weather brought out the biggest search effort since Officer Partin fell.
From the air, land and water, more than 150 people scoured more than 40 miles of the Ohio River.
Two helicopters provided by the National Guard and the Kentucky State Police searched the shoreline from Cincinnati to Aurora, Ind.
Ten search-and-rescue dogs combed the riverbanks with 100 people looking for clues on foot.
Three boats worked until dark, checking drift lines, barges, moorings and piles of floating debris.
Covington police said they will conduct the same search effort today before deciding on the most productive way to continue looking.
