Police and water crews could be seen scouring the below deck area during the apparent rescue mission.

An eyewitness at the scene, who wished to remain anonymous, told the Scottish Sun: “It was an obvious search for water for one person.

“Police rushed around the bridge and a rescue team appeared and headed to the water’s edge. They spent 10 minutes there among the tall grass.

“The raft rescue team was on the wrong side of the spillway to search.
