I was just at Green Lane Reservoir with my husband and kids yesterday from about 1:30 till 6! I SAW NOTHING! NO COPS, NOTHING! AND PEOPLE WERE IN BOATS. What part of the reservoir was this person found? I was talking to a couple of middle aged guys who were fishing and no one mentioned anything. Also, I could have rented a boat if i wanted to, and people were in the boats until I left. I just LOVE how these cops notify us when something is going on. ...and this report is BULLSH*t cause i was there

I was at the reservoir at 9am on Sunday with my boyfriend, we wanted to rent a boat to spend the day fishing and we were informed that they were not renting boats due a search for a body in the water. The state police were on the scene and they pinpointed the general location of the body so we walked further down the trail to fish and when we left around 2:30 the Telford Water Search and Rescue Squad was there preparing to retrieve the body. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Della de Cock - you are such a wonderful person to think that the world revolves around you... the park is a large area, and there are 2 sections... the park and the reservoir. I have no idea where you were, but if you were at the boat rental section at 1pm off of Hill Rd and looked at the end of the parking lot you would have seen many state police vehicles as well as Telford Diving Unit 2 trucks and trailers. I hope that you realize that you made an ass out of yourself.
