Dive team called to investigate unoccupied vehicle in Kansas River at De Soto park

By George Diepenbrock

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.

That is crazy that someone would steal a car and then drive it into the Kansas River. He must have been drunk or something. But I still don't get it.
