Johnson County Sheriff’s officials called in an Overland Park dive team to help recover a vehicle in the Kansas River, Deputy Rick Howell said Wednesday afternoon.
Howell said at 6 p.m. investigators discovered no one was in the gray or silver car and that the vehicle had been reported stolen in Overland Park early Wednesday.
A person at Riverfest Park, 33440 W. 79th St., noticed the car in the water 50 yards from the shore, and the sheriff’s office called in an Overland Park dive team.
