AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Authorities continue searching for a man reported missing several weeks after a car he was in went into the Cuyahoga River with a passenger who managed to swim to shore.

Akron dive teams searched the river again Thursday for 27-year-old La’ron Harris after someone reported seeing clothing near the area where Harris went missing Feb. 21.

Authorities say passenger 25-year-old Kaila Watkins told police that she and Harris escaped the vehicle after Harris drove the car into the river. But Watkins says she never saw Harris get out of the water.

Akron divers were assisted Thursday by authorities from Cuyahoga Falls, Stow, Macedonia, Green, Coventry Township and New Franklin Township.

The car was found a day after it went into the river and pulled from the water.
