Divers found no one was inside a 26ft boat that sank in freezing water at Columbia Point Marina Park on Thursday morning.
the Richland Police and Columbia Basin Dive Rescue volunteers were called to the public docks around 8 a.m. after passers-by spotted the sunken boat during an early morning stroll.

They reported seeing it moored at the marina for four to five days before it sank.
Rusty Bell, the dive rescue officer, said the boat was empty when divers checked it, but it appears someone was working on it.
