Scott County Rescue/Recovery Operations

Law Enforcement officers and First Responders from around the region are resuming the efforts today to continue the search on the Fourche River in Scott County.

            Heavy rains and high waters have kept the second day efforts from beginning until mid-morning.  The search is continuing for AGFC Wild Officer First Class Joel Campora as well as two female subjects from the Y City area who are still unaccounted for at this time.

            12 teams have been formed with searching assignments for areas of the land around the river.  Several boats are to be deployed as the river conditions allow.  Several aircraft are on standby.  They will be deployed as the conditions permit.  Several K-9 units are also being utilized.  

            Heavy equipment (back-hoes, dozers) has been brought to the area to begin the search in piles of debris.  Area bridges have assigned monitors to visually keep watch on the downstream flow.

            Scott County residents are providing support to the rescue/recovery efforts with food and drinks.  Red Cross is also on scene.  

            This morning rains have created more flooded areas in Scott County.  Fort Smith Fire Department Swift Water Rescue Unit, Sebastian County Sheriff's Office, and the Scott County Road Department have been deployed in rescue operations for stranded motorist.  This area is about 20 miles from the Y City area.
