BIG LAKE, Mo. — A switch in recovery tactics proved successful Tuesday in locating the body of the K-9 member of a missing highway patrol trooper duo. But 17-year veteran Fred Guthrie Jr. is still missing in Northwest Missouri floodwaters.

The 46-year-old trooper and his 5-year-old K-9, Reed, disappeared while on flood duty in Holt County on Monday. A search-and-rescue mission began at 3 p.m. and continued until 11 p.m. Monday, before it turned to a "water recovery effort" that started at daylight Tuesday.
