HUMBOLDT ? Another extensive search in and near the Neosho River for Iolan Aaron Hutton, suspected in a Wednesday morning armed robbery in Iola, came up empty Thursday and Friday.
Allen County Sheriff Bryan Murphy detailed the ongoing investigation, one day after the suspect was last spotted grasping a log as he floated down the Neosho while being chased by law enforcement.
Thursday and Friday?s searches included scouring the river banks several miles downstream from Humboldt, using boats from the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks and Chanute Fire Department. One was equipped with side scan sonar capabilities to detect submerged objects. They spotted several logs and other debris, but no body, Murphy said.
