River search continues for missing Franklin student

Follow The Republic:

A search will resume Sunday morning for Jason K. Moran, 17, the Franklin High School student missing in the Big Blue River near the Edinburgh dam.

Water rescue teams from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, area fire departments and sheriff departments began searching at 7 a.m. Saturday from boats using sonar, Jet Quillen, DNR spokesman said.

The teams also did a grid search with rescue team members in dry suits tethered to a line, walking in the river in the shallower areas near the river bank.

A drag bar also was utilized from the boats to try to find Moran, Quillen said.
