Authorities say a multi-day search for a car that crashed into the Kalamazoo River in Battle Creek has come up empty.

Dive teams, police officers and firefighters searched starting Saturday after the crash was reported shortly before 5 a.m. that day. The search continued Tuesday with officers, boats, a dive team and officials from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

Police say they were told a 31-year-old man may have been driving the car. Authorities are seeking tips from the public if anything unusual is seen.

The search was stopped after efforts on Tuesday and officials say an air search is expected to take place on Thursday after high winds ease in the area.
