MISSOURI — The Missouri State Highway Patrol is searching for a suspect who went missing in Shoal Creek.
Authorities say just after midnight Sunday morning troopers tried to pull over a driver for a possible DWI along Coyote Drive near Shoal Creek.
MSHP says they chased the suspect for less than a mile down dirt roads to canary that goes to Filmore Bridge.
Troopers say the suspect drove into shallow water in Shoal Creek — left the vehicle and tried to swim across — but he was carried Downstream in the current.
The MSHP Water Rescue along with two other agencies searched the creek for nearly eight hours Sunday and suspended the search at 1:45pm.
MSHP is now trying to locate the vehicle’s owner.
