A water rescue search by emergency services at a pond in Lowestoft has been called off.
Fire crews were called to Kirby Cane Walk, off Walberswick Way, at 3.53pm this afternoon following reports of a missing woman and child.
However the woman was found to be out of the water when crews arrived at the scene, and it was unclear whether anyone else was still missing.
Paul Field, group commander at Suffolk Fire and Rescue, said: 'We had reports this afternoon of a person in the water - we responded with fire appliances and water rescue teams from Lowestoft, ambulance and police were in attendance along with an air ambulance.
'We carried out a thorough search of all the reed beds, the mud and the water.
'We are happy to say there is no one in there.'
A spokesman for Suffolk Police confirmed the search had been called off and they were no longer searching for a missing child.
