An abandoned dog, canoe and wetsuit prompted fears someone may be in trouble in the water at a beauty spot in the Broads.
Emergency services raced to the scene at Horstead Mill, near Coltishall, after a member of the public raised the alarm around 8.20pm on Thursday.
Fire crews from Wroxham, Martham and Carrow, along with a rescue unit, joined Hemsby Lifeboat, Mundesley and Happisburgh Coastguard team, a Coastguard helicopter from Humberside, and police to search the area.
The ambulance service was also on scene.
However, they were stood down around 10pm after failing to find anything.
