Police searched the grounds and water near the Manitoba Legislature on Friday afternoon after finding some "items of concern," a spokesperson for the Winnipeg Police said.
Around 3:30 p.m., crews were seen searching on land and in boats on the Red River.
At one point, an officer pulled what appeared to be a woman's purse off a piece of ice in the river.
During the search, an officer said police found items of clothing near the shore.
Friday evening, a spokesperson confirmed the identification unit had been on the scene. He said searchers hadn't found anything other than the initial items that sparked the search.
The investigation continues.
