Search Continues in Kansas for Suspected Drowning Victim

KSAL StaffAugust 22, 2016

 

The search continues for a Wichita, Kansas, man whose pickup truck was swept away by floodwaters.

Sixty-two-year-old Richard Lowery went missing after torrential storms dropped up to 7 inches of rain in southern Kansas on Friday night.

Butler County Sheriff Kelly Herzet says Lowery and his son were in their truck near a creek south of Rose Hill when they drove into water over the road and tried to back out. That’s when Herzet says the truck got swept away into the creek.

The son, 38-year-old Samuel Lowery, managed to escape the truck and floated to safety downstream.

Lowery’s pickup truck and some of his clothing have been found.
