WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) -- Police in central Kentucky have renewed the search for evidence in the disappearance of a man last seen alive in 2006.

Winchester police and Lexington firefighters spent part of Thursday scanning the Kentucky River near Fort Boonesboro for clues as to what happened to Tom Profitt.

Police say they were looking for a car connected to Profitt's disappearance. But officers declined to comment on what led them to the river. Profitt's car, a 1997 Buick Century, hasn't been seen since he went missing on May 3, 2006.

When he first disappeared, police said it was suspicious. A few weeks after, they said no foul play was suspected.

In 2007, police thought Profitt's body had been found in Spencer County, but the remains weren't his.
