Dive search suspended

A search of the Colorado River by FBI divers ended Thursday night as it started on Monday: with little official comment.

Grand Junction Police Cmdr. Mike Nordine said the seven Washington, D.C.-based divers are scheduled to fly out of Grand Junction this morning.

With divers still in the water at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nordine declined comment when asked if they had found what they were looking for.

Violent predator moves

Grand Junction police announced Thursday that a sexually violent predator has moved to a new address. Carl Vincent Avery, 46, moved to 352 Pitkin Ave., No. 2.

Avery has been convicted of sexual assault on a child and sexual assault in Mesa County and attempted sexual assault in Garfield County. He was released from the Colorado Department of Corrections and discharged from parole Jan. 11.

State law allows law enforcement to notify the public when a sexually violent predator is released or changes addresses.
