Authorities Monday searched the ocean after a woman reported possibly seeing a downed aircraft in the water near Rancho Palos Verdes, but no aircraft was found.

The woman reported the possible downed aircraft in the water about 5:55 p.m., and personnel from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Los Angeles County Fire Department and U.S. Coast Guard searched the water, according to sheriff’s Deputy Juanita Navarro.

The search was called off about 6:40 p.m., and authorities believe the woman may have seen a tugboat pulling a vessel, not a downed aircraft, Navarro said.
