***CORRECTION BY OFFICIALS:
There was only 1 car found, not 2. The vehicle had been missing since 2003, not 2006.
This case is not connected to the missing Attorney.
An investigation is now underway after not 1, but 2 vehicles are located at the 2-mile marker of Watson Hollow Cove.
According to the Highway Patrol, the first vehicle that was removed from the water was a car reported stolen in 2006.
Early on in the investigation, police officials reveled they were concerned the vehicle could be that of a missing Lake Area Attorney, Brian Byrd, who was reported missing just last night.
However, upon pulling the vehicle from the water it was obvious it was not connected to the separate cases.
A missing persons case has been opened for Byrd, who’s whereabouts remain unknown at this time.
Details about the 2nd vehicle at the scene have not yet been released.
This remains an ongoing story and we’ll continue to bring you the latest here on News/Talk KRMS.
KRMS is on the scene of a water patrol recovery operation in Osage Beach.
Officials discovered a vehicle beneath the water at the 2MM of Watson Hollow cove.
The Camden County Sheriff’s Department confirms that the one car believed to belong to a missing lake area attorney is not his, but more information has been received which is being followed up on.
The vehicle discovered was described as a 2006 vehicle that was reported stolen. What was thought to be a second vehicle under the water in the area was not found by the dive team from the highway patrol’s water patrol division.
We will continue to share updates as they become available.
