(EDINBURGH) – The search for a person who may be in the Big Blue River continues today. Responders are searching the area downstream from the reported incident in Edinburgh.
They are utilizing boat based searches, probing the shore with pike poles and viewing the area from above with drones.
The identity of the possible victim still remains unknown. Local law enforcement has been following up on leads as they have emerged, but at this point have not identified a missing person. They have watched surveillance video from local business, canvased the area and contacted local schools.
If anyone knows a person who matches the description of the possible victim from the Edinburgh area that is unaccounted for, please contact Johnson County Sheriff Dept.
Search efforts continue to be hampered by high, swift river conditions and the bitter cold. The search will continue today until nightfall.
