TOWN OF RANDALL — There was a large emergency services presence Monday afternoon in Randall Township, according to the Town of Randall Fire Department.

Fire and rescue from around the area searched Monday afternoon in the rain, but the fire department told TODAY'S TMJ4 that it did not find anything.

There was a strong Kenosha County Police and EMS presence at KD Park in Randall, where deputies with canines and drones searched for a person in possible peril, Sheriff David Beth told the Kenosha News earlier Monday, after a 911 call from someone who reportedly heard cries for help.

At 11:36 a.m., the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department received a report of a subject yelling for help coming from the New Munster Wildlife Area in the 8500 block of CTH KD (352nd Avenue).

The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department and numerous other agencies actively searched the 1,226-acre area for the subject.

This search utilized resources including K9 teams, a drone team (unmanned aerial vehicle), All Terrain Vehicles and personnel on foot.

The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department, the Village of Twin Lakes Police Department, Town of Wheatland Fire Department, Village of Twin Lakes Fire and Rescue, Town of Randall Fire Department, Village of Salem Lakes Fire and Rescue, Town of Paris Fire and Rescue and the Newport Township Fire Department searched the New Munster Wildlife area for this subject.

The search was called off at 3:46 p.m. No subjects in need of help were located in the wildlife area.

The public is encouraged to report anything suspicious to local law enforcement.
