(KOLEEN) - Indiana Conservation Officers have located 39-year-old Tania Holloman, of Koleen, as well as her vehicle.

Rescue crews were searching the Plummer River and located what they believed was Holloman's vehicle late Sunday night.

Early this morning, the water depth receded last night and officers were able to see the top of the vehicle this morning.
Members of the Conservation Officer dive team were able to confirm that Holloman was still inside the vehicle.

The vehicle was removed from the river this morning.

According to police, Holloman phoned her father at 9:30 p.m. Saturday and told him she had accidentally driven into the flood water.

Police were able to trace Holloman's cell phone to a location west of Koleen on Mineral-Koleen Road.

Greene County Sheriff deputies, Richland-Taylor Fire Department firefighters, a Greene County Ambulance crew and Indiana State Police troopers and Indiana Conservation officers searched throughout Saturday night and all day Sunday.

Conservation Officers are searching by boat, but high waters and fast currents have hindered their search efforts.

Late Sunday night, while using poles to search the water, an object was found that may be a vehicle. The water depth where the object was located was roughly eight to ten feet deep. Search efforts resumed this morning.

Conservation Officers discourage anyone from driving through flooded roadways. If a roadway is flooded, please turn around.

Assisting with the search were the Greene County Sheriff's Department, Richland-Taylor Fire Department, Richland Fire Department, Greene County Ambulance, Indiana State Police, the Greene County Coroners Office and Indiana Conservation Officers.
