A possibly naked person is believed to be in Duluth's sewer system and was the subject of a search Wednesday afternoon. 

Duluth Fire Department was contacted at 12:17 p.m. about a man entering a sewer pipe near Interstate 35 and S. 3rd Ave. W. Shortly thereafter, first responders recovered clothing from a nearby manhole. 

They searched for the man for two hours, never finding him and ultimately leaving the scene. It's not clear if the man ever left the sewer, nor is it clear what condition he might be in. 

First responders from Duluth's fire and police departments, and the city's Public Works Department, assisted in the search.
