Search and recovery crews continue search for missing woman in Butte County

Posted:
The water has greatly receded from last week's storm, but not enough for South Dakota Highway Patrol's helicopter search team to locate a woman who was washed away during the torrential rain.

Kristen Lakin, 24, and her travel partner were swept away by storm water a week ago. The other woman was found the next day, but Lakin remains missing.

Deputy Tristan Clements says on Wednesday morning, the Pennington County Dive Team will search a pond that is currently an area of interest.
 
Helicopter crews may plan another mission next week, after the waters further recede.
