KITTITAS, Wash. -- Kittitas County Sheriff's marine patrol unit and swift water rescue deputies recovered an SUV from the Yakima River.
The rescuers saw a black, Toyota 4-Runner around 6-30am Monday. No one was found inside the vehicle.
Crews searched 11 miles downstream to Roza Dam, looking for possible victims, but detectives determined the suspects took off leaving the stolen vehicle behind.
The vehicle was reported stolen earlier this week in Ellensburg.
