Question about English (US)

I wrote a sentence:
"They doubted there is anyone who could come to their rescue."

An online tutor commented,
"doubted" is the past particle of 'doubt', so you need to use the past form "was".

I was wondering about two things.
1. Is really wrong to use 'is' there? I thought both 'is' and 'was' are fine in the context.
2. I doubt "doubted" in my sentence is the past particle, so I need another native's opinion. Thanks in advance.
