River search update

Here is an update on a story I posted earlier today concerning the abandoned car found on the Route 30.

Police are looking for a 43-year-old Lancaster County woman whose car was found abandoned on the Route 30 Bridge over the Susquehanna River between Columbia and Wrightsville.

Manheim Township police say Tracy Kiebach was reported missing by a family member on Wednesday at 11:20 p.m.

Officers broadcast a description of Kiebach and her vehicle and, within a short time, her vehicle was found unoccupied on the bridge in West Hempfield Township, police said. The engine was running and the emergency flashers were on.

Anyone with information on Kiebach’s whereabouts is asked to call Manheim Township police at  569-6401 or West Hempfield Township Police at 285-5191.
