Palo Alto police searched for nearly two hours using dogs and a helicopter for the occupants of a vehicle that crashed into a 50-foot ravine near Foothills Park on Thursday night (Dec. 30).
The search closed down Page Mill Road near the site as police looked for possible victims, at one point bringing in a helicopter from San Jose Police Department.
The helicopter search was called off when the searchlight could not penetrate the thick vegetation and police brought in sniffer dogs, according to police dispatchers.
But no victims were found as of about 10 p.m.
Police Lt. Sandra Brown said no blood was found at the scene. Police later determined the car was stolen out of Menlo Park, Brown said.
Police opened one lane of the road to traffic after the car was removed from the ravine at about 9:45 p.m.
