CIBOLO, Texas (AP) - Officers searched a rain-swollen South Texas creek for a missing woman after her car was swept away by high water and her husband was rescued clinging to a tree.

Emergency personnel on Friday searched Santa Clara Creek near Cibolo (SEE’-boh-loh), 20 miles northeast of San Antonio. Cibolo police say the couple’s submerged vehicle was found Friday afternoon.

Chief Gary Cox says the couple tried to locate a friend whose car broke down around 1 a.m. Friday on Interstate 10. They missed their exit, tried another road and their car was swept away by highway flooding.

Road crews, several hours later, were erecting high-water barricades when they heard screams and found the man in a tree. He suffered minor injuries.

Officials didn’t immediately say what happened to the couple’s friend.
