A technical rescue team that went into a sewer looking kids who were believed be trapped have completed their search and didn't find anyone.

The first photo tweeted by Aurora Fire Rescue showed crews wearing respirators getting ready to enter the sewer on South Irvington Court to conduct a search.

South Metro Fire Rescue said their Technical Rescue Team helped the Aurora Fire Department with the search.

Denver7 Reporter Lance Hernandez was there while crews went underground looking for the kids.

Neighbors told Hernandez that she's seen kids - and adults - go down into the sewer to retrieve balls.

Officials with the Aurora Fire Department said it is a very dangerous thing to do because you could be overcome by the fumes.
