FORT HOOD, TX (KXXV) -

The search continues for a person who was swept away into Clear Creek near Turkey Run Road Tuesday after Fort Hood emergency services crews found the vehicle.

Fort Hood emergency crews said they responded just before 6 a.m. to reports that one person in a vehicle was swept into the creek. They announced they had found the vehicle around 9 p.m.

There are search teams with safety gear searching the water’s edge, but high water and more potential rain are making efforts to find the person more difficult.

More than 70 emergency personnel, including swift-water rescue teams and two AH-64 Apache Helicopters from the 1st Air Cavalry Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division are helping.

Emergency crews also responded to calls of three other people in vehicles caught in high water overnight. All three were able get to safety.

The only road that's still closed in the area is Old Georgetown Rd. Until further notice, all low-water crossings will remain closed.
