The hunters found the truck submerged with a person inside. The occupant was taken to the hospital where he is being treated for hypothermia.

It was later learned that the individual had his two-year-old daughter with him, Emma.

Both individuals were last seen Wednesday, November 24th at 12:00 p.m.

Emma is described as being two years of age, brown hair, and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing all black with a cream-colored jacket with butterflies on it.

The search will continue tomorrow at 8 am near the end of a farm road called Beatty Lane. Neighbors are already jumping in to help wherever they can.

“I was going as slow as I possibly could looking everywhere. There’s so many buildings, and the river alone is so big,” describes Brittany Matney who went out to help search, “I have a daughter that’s actually 2-years-old, so it hit close to home.”

This is an ongoing investigation. We will update once we have further information.
