Valley View Ferry
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – An ongoing search and investigation along the Kentucky River has closed down the Valley View Ferry for the remainder of the day Monday.

Officials say a tip led them to believe that there may be evidence of a crime in or around the Kentucky River.  Lexington authorities have a dive team on scene, where Tates Creek Road meets the Kentucky River.

The paddlewheel ferry shuttles vehicles across the Kentucky River between Madison and Jessamine counties.
