PARKVILLE, Mo. — Police are in Parkville at Platte Landing Park Friday conducting a search, and while police conduct their search the park has been closed. On Friday evening, missing woman Toni Anderson’s family told FOX 4 that her car was pulled from the water after an SUV was pulled earlier in the day.
Family said police confirmed that the license plate matches Anderson’s car.
Stacey Graves with the Kansas City Police Department says while conducting a sonar check in the river, another vehicle was located under water. Police pulled the SUV from the water, but it wasn’t believed to be related to any Kansas City police investigations.
Platte Landing Park sits adjacent to English Landing Park along the Missouri River. At the beginning of February English Landing Park became the focus in the search for Anderson, who has been missing since January. Anderson’s boyfriend told FOX 4 in an earlier interview that a source told him the park was the last place where her phone was pinged. Anderson’s 2014 black Ford Focus has not yet been found.
FOX 4 has a crew on the scene and will be adding details as they are confirmed.
