Drones used in search for missing Anderson woman

Search crews are now using drones as they search for Linda Denise Kuykendall, 64, who went missing from Anderson when the home she was in was swept downstream in flood waters.

At the time of the flood, Linda was in the home at 400 Jon Rd. with her son, his fiance and their two children, ages one and two, according to Anderson Police.

The four of them were rescued but Linda was unable to get out and is believed to have been swept downstream inside the home.

Search crews are still combing the area, with a temporary shift south out of Anderson and further downstream on Indian Creek.

Today, drones are being used to survey fields and wooded areas outside of the normal confines of the creek.

Two boats have also been utilized today and have been searching an area from Noel, Missouri on the Elk River to Anderson on Indian Creek.

There are plans to use search and rescue dogs again as well.
