PALO (AP) -- Authorities have found a car in the Cedar River near Palo but they don't know if it's the same car that a driver reported seeing in the river two weeks ago.
The car was found on Sunday. Linn County Sheriff Brian Gardner says he doesn't know if the car belongs to a Atkins woman reported missing by her family.
A passer-by reported the car on March 14th. A search that night turned up nothing. The next day, deputies found possible tire tracks leading to the river. Flooding made it too dangerous to search until recently.
Dive teams on Sunday tried to attach tow cables to it, but the current snapped the cables.
Gardner says they'll have to wait for the river to drop before pulling the car to shore.
