SHINE, Wash. (AP) - Sonar is being used to scan the bottom of Hood Canal in the search for a missing transportation worker and vehicle.

The Kitsap Sun reports (https://bit.ly/1Xp4IVY) the unidentified worker has been missing since Monday.

Transportation officials say the maintenance employee may have driven off the Hood Canal bridge.

The state’s transportation department hired Global Diving and Salvage to search 400 feet deep using sonar that can scan larger areas at higher resolution.

Transportation department spokeswoman Claudia Bingham-Baker said a submersible rover will check hot spots Sunday.
