ST. HELENA PARISH - First responders are continuing to search high water for two vehicles that have gone missing since Saturday morning.
A woman was rescued on Highway 1048 earlier in the day, but she told first responders that she saw another vehicle float away while she was trapped in her car on Friday night.
