Rescue Boat Launched for Vehicle Reported in the Yakima River

Posted: Updated:

UNION GAP, Wash-- Rescuers came-up empty handed Tuesday night after reports of a car floating down the Yakima River. 

The technical rescue crew launched a search boat into the Yakima River off of Thorp Road. A deputy with the Yakima Sheriff's Office said people called in and said they saw a vehicle floating south of the boat launch.

The search was called off because of the dangerous river conditions. The deputy also said the area is a well known dumpsite for stolen cars.
