LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Police say University of Nebraska-Lincoln student reported missing last week may have fallen into a creek and been swept away in strong currents.

The Lincoln Police Department on Wednesday said a local business’ video surveillance camera contained footage of a woman who is believed to be 30-year-old Anwesha Dey. She was last seen leaving a friend’s house on foot about 7 p.m. on May 3.

The video obtained by investigators Tuesday shows her trying to cross Antelope Creek, falling in and appearing to struggle as she attempted to gain her footing. It then shows her being carried away by the current.

Chief Jim Peschong says crews have begun searching the area. He says heavy rainfall that hammered the Lincoln area last week could have carried her body further downstream.
