TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - We continue following a developing story we first broke on News 10 Wednesday evening.
Thursday morning, rescue workers restarted their search for a person in the Wabash River. Witnesses reported seeing a person jump into the water around 6:00 p.m. Wednesday.
Initially, crews thought they were searching for a woman based on a description from witnesses. However, Thursday morning Indiana Conversation Officers told News 10 they were looking for a young man with long hair.
Witnesses said they last saw the person in the Wabash River near Fairbanks Park in Terre Haute.
Indiana Conservation Officers confirm they've transitioned the search from a rescue to a recovery mission. They plan to continue the search until they find the person's body or have substantial evidence of the person's whereabouts.
They are using boats and sonar technology in the search.
