Authorities Thursday afternoon were out on the Mississippi River continuing their search for the body of Kira Trevino, the missing St. Paul woman who was last seen alive in February.

According to St. Paul Police Sgt. Paul Paulos, police as well as the water patrols of the Dakota County Sheriff’s office and the Ramsey County Sheriff’s office were out Thursday under the Wakota Bridge, which spans the river between South St. Paul and Newport.

Law enforcement was following up on a lead relating to the Trevino case, Paulos said.

Around 2 p.m., authorities concluded the search, which began a little before 11 a.m. No evidence was found.

Trevino, 30, last seen alive on Feb. 21, is presumed dead, and her husband Jeffery Trevino has been charged with two counts of second-degree murder in her disappearance.

Police and community members originally focused their searches on Keller Lake in Maplewood though community weekend searches have since spread to other lakes and parks in the area.
