DALLAS - It's now been two weeks since SMU cop Mark McCullers went missing.  He and his vehicle were swept away by high water near the Fitzhugh Bridge. Since then, dive teams have been searching Turtle Creek and the Trinity River in hopes of finding any trace of the missing officer.

Thirteen hours after the incident, McCullers' car was found about a mile away from where he disappeared.  Rescue crews have come up empty on any leads as to where he may be.

Now the Highland Park Department of Public Safety has released the surveillance and corresponding 911 call from that fateful night.

McCullers' car was almost hidden by the heavy rain right before it was swept away. Shortly after McCullers called for help.

McCullers: “Hey I got a situation. I`m over at 4100 St. Johns working for Highland Park part-time and it's flooding. It's starting to go in my car. My car is moving right now.”

911: “It's moving on its own or you're floating?”

McCullers: “It's moving on its own.  I'm sitting over here for this gentleman that, I guess, required us to come over here to sit at this house and they asked me if I want to do it and now this is going on.”

The operator would lose contact with McCullers shortly after. The search for the missing officer has now been turned over to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
