(WIBW) - Jefferson Co. authorities have recovered a missing trash truck driver in the Delaware River who never returned from his route Friday.

Jefferson Co. Sheriff Jeff Herrig says crews recovered both the missing man and the truck around 2:20 p.m.

An Overland Park dive team was used.

On Friday evening the driver slid off into the guardrail and over into the river.

Sheriff Jeff Herrig says Deffenbaugh Waste Management contacted them around 6:30 p.m Friday. They reported the man's phone was last pinged around noon at 31st and Detlor Rd. He'd made his last stop a short time earlier in Detlor Acres.
