LAUREL, Md. — A motorist is missing after a pickup truck was swept away in high water in Laurel, Anne Arundel County fire officials say.

Officials announced Wednesday that the truck has been found empty and they are still looking for the driver.

Early Tuesday, officials received a report that a pickup truck had been swept off Brock Bridge Road. Firefighters and paramedics, including divers and swift water swimmers, responded to the scene and searched for several hours without success.

Fire officials say units returned to the area periodically throughout the day as water receded and late Tuesday county police found the truck about 150 feet south of the bridge.

Personnel searched the water and shoreline for several hours after the discovery and continue to search the area Wednesday morning.
