PUTNAM COUNTY (WTOL) - The trucker's rig became stranded in flood waters late Wednesday night, March 10.
When rescue crews made it to the truck, there was no one inside. It happened in the area of Putnam County Road 15 and Township Road H-13 near the Village of Continental.
On scene are fire departments, the U.S Coast Guard, the sheriff's department and state troopers, all searching for the trucker who went missing.
They searched by air and by boat, hoping the waters would work with them. "The rate that the river is going down, hopefully we can come up with something here," said the Putnam County Sheriff.
Water is 6-7 feet deep. The river crested at 28-29 feet, though it's well below that now.
