BOSTON (CBS) — Surveillance video prompted Boston Police dive teams to search an area of the Charles River by a railroad bridge Tuesday for a missing Harvard man.
Police say video evidence led them to search the section of the river for Zach Marr, who went missing ten days ago. He was last seen outside the Bell In Hand near Faneuil Hall.
The railroad bridge under which they were searching was near the Zakim Bridge. It’s the same area they’ve searched before, though police said they now had a more specific location to search.
Marr was celebrating his 22nd birthday with his family when he stepped out to smoke a cigarette–and hasn’t been seen since.
“I just hope that he can come home,” Amanda Marr, Zachary’s cousin said.
Divers have been hampered by poor visibility, and have to feel their way around as they are only able to see about a foot in front of them in the water.
