FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Mobile County Sheriff’s Deputies, Flotilla and Marine Police, and United States Coast Guard were contacted last night around 9:30 to search for two missing people on the Escatawpa River.
MCSO Deputies and Flotilla located the couple 1.9 miles north of hwy 98 at approximately 3:15 am. The River in that area was almost dried up so deputies and flotilla were able to walk into the area where the couple was located.
The United States Coast Guard helicopter flew out the wife, who is also 8 months pregnant. She was taken to an area hospital.
There is no further information at this time.
