WI - Kathy Van Altena, 39, West Bend, 18 Oct 2009 - Missing after auto accident
Investigators are looking for Kathy Van Altena after her car was found abandoned in the Milwaukee River near Fillmore.
Investigators say Van Altena, who is 39, left the Fillmore House Tavern just after 2 a.m. Sunday morning.
At 11 a.m. Sunday her car was found a short distance away in the north branch of the Milwaukee River.
No one was located inside the vehicle and the keys to the vehicle were missing. Investigators said that could indicate that she was able to escape the vehicle.
Van Altena is known to have attempted a cell phone call to an acquaintance at 2:26 a.m. indicating that she had been in an accident. The person she called said they couldn't understand what she was saying.

Her accident occurred on Trading Post Trail half a mile south of County Highway H.
Investigators say her 1994 Cadillac Deville was southbound on Trading Post Trail when for reasons unknown it left the roadway and entered the southbound ditch line. The vehicle struck a retaining wall at the northwest corner of a two-lane bridge over the Milwaukee River.
"I was just in shock," exclaimed Gloria.
"(Authorities) said they were sending out dive teams, and it just gets worse from there."
On Sunday, more than 50 first responders searched the area where the car was found in the river. Members of the dive team walked the riverbed looking for any sign of Kathy. They did not discover anything.
