Aerial Search Over Cumberland River Taking Place for Missing Person Dakota Bingham October 13, 2021

Detectives investigating the disappearance of missing person Dakota Bingham, 28, today located surveillance video from a business that shows a man, believed to be Bingham, struggling to stay afloat in the Cumberland River just after midnight Monday.
Bingham was last seen by friends late Sunday night at Nobles sports bar, 974 Main Street. Bingham, who had reportedly been drinking heavily, left the bar around 11:15 p.m. About 30 minutes later, he was seen at the TA Truck Stop, 111 North 1st Street, which is also the same area/time where his phone was last detected.
A friend who was with him Sunday night reported him missing Monday afternoon when she did not hear from him.
An MNPD helicopter crew is checking the river for any sign of Bingham.
