The Kansas City Fire Department conducted a water rescue Sunday night near the Heart of America bridge after witnesses reported a vehicle driving into the Missouri River around 9 p.m.
Fire Chief Paul Berardi said emergency crews found tire tracks leading into the water near 1000 River Front Road and began a “hasty” search to locate the vehicle.
Multiple rescue boats canvassed the water while emergency crews searched the riverbank.
After crews tagged a potential location of the vehicle, Berardi called the search off shortly after 10:30 p.m. He said the Fire Department and the Missouri Highway Patrol would resume the search Monday morning.
