ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — As the search for a missing Osceola County mother enters its third week, investigators have turned to new technology to aid in their search.
On Thursday, deputies and marine search teams equipped with a portable underwater video camera system spent the day searching the Wekiva River for signs of Paola Miranda-Rosa.
Miranda-Rosa has been missing since Dec.17, after family members reported having not seen her since she left a family member’s home in Orange County.
On Dec, 21, Orange County deputies said they found Rosa’s black 2011 Chevrolet HHR at Wekiwa Springs State Park.
A search of the park and surrounding area yielded no clues.
Then on Tuesday, the sheriff’s office received video taken by hikers that appears to show Rosa wading in the water at the park on Dec. 18.
Osceola Sheriff Marcos Lopez said that prompted deputies to return to the area with underwater cameras.
“She could’ve walked out of the water and went somewhere else, but we didn’t have this type of equipment and we’re going to utilize it today,” Lopez said.
Investigators said they do not suspect foul play.
