Crews arrived just before 11 a.m. Wednesday to the river inside the Great Trinity Forest. The vehicle was seen upright before flipping over, and DFR says a civilian who witnessed the flip called 911. They also claimed to have seen someone on top of the vehicle before it went under.

A rescue boat was launched and, after a short time, had some issues with the motor. A second boat was used to rescue the DFR crew members.

A larger boat was put back in the water just after noon to continue the search.
