The empty 2012 GMC Acadia was spotted by Nebraska Public Power District staff members who were on helicopter patrol.

The incident was reported at 9:31 a.m. and the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office responded along with members of the North Platte Fire and Rescue Department and Lincoln County Dive Rescue team.
