MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Authorities say after hours of searching, they are still not able to confirm if there is anyone inside a vehicle last seen sinking below the water line of the Mississippi River.
Major Darrell Huggett, of the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office, said they received a report of a car going into the river from 10th Avenue bridge around 9 a.m. Sunday from a jogger nearby.
Once officers were on scene, police were able to confirm the vehicle in the water and said they saw it just before it sunk below the water. Huggett said a buoy was placed in the river, at the site where the car was last spotted. Since that time, there have not been sightings of the vehicle.
