Search warrants were issued over the weekend in relation to the missing Nashville firefighter who plunged into the Tennessee River last Monday.
32-year-old Jesse Reed is still missing after he and his wife somehow managed to drive their vehicle into the river last week, with his wife managing to escape and survive cold conditions until she was rescued.
According to Fox News, two search warrants were executed in relation to the incident.
An extensive search eventually turned up the missing truck, which was found unoccupied and with the windows rolled down.
“The car was empty,” Deputy Rob Edwards with the Humphreys County Sheriff’s Office said. “The windows were rolled down, which was weird. That was strange.”
HCSO Sheriff Chris Davis believes that while searches on land have been conducted, Reed is likely still submerged in the river, provided he did not manage to survive the ordeal.
“We have no evidence to indicate that he is not still in this water,” said Davis. “I would like to ask for the continued prayer for the fast recovery and the closure of this situation for the family.”
The search is expected to continue.
