Day four of rescue efforts resumed Thursday morning in hopes of finding a Nashville firefighter who disappeared Monday morning after his truck plummeted into the Tennessee River in Humphreys County. Nashville Fire Department firefighter Jesse Reed, 32, went missing early Monday after his vehicle plunged into the water near Mason's Boat Dock in Waverly, authorities said. A woman, later identified as Reed's wife, was also in the vehicle when it went under but escaped unharmed, Humphrey County Sheriff Chris Davis said. Davis said the truck entered the water about 1:30 a.m. off of Bluff Point Lane north of Waverly and arriving deputies found the car already submerged. At that point they were unable to locate it. Later that day, about noon, crews found the vehicle in the water but Reed was not inside, authorities said.
