MARSHALL COUNTY, KY. (WSIL)-- The rescue squad has named Brandy Osborne as the missing Illinois woman swept away by the Tennessee River.

Osborne was last seen in Marshall County walking into a flooded area to meet with a friend. That's when authorities say she was swept away.

The 37-year-old is 5'5 ft and weighs 130 lbs. She has red hair and blue eyes and was wearing a pink hoodie, blue jeans and rubber boots at the time.

Over the past two days, multiple agencies and approximately 50 personnel have searched for Osborne using boats with sonars, drags, various K9 teams on and off the water, and drones.

Searchers will deploy again Monday, and will continue as long as resources are available.
