The Hanover Rescue Team, the OPP team and Aiton Firefighters have helped in the search.
The police say the vehicle is currently under water at 20 feet and is not visible from the air or river banks.
The vehicle will remain in the water until it is safely removed.
The West Gray police identified a dead man found in a river as 24-year-old Gregory Steven Glen McTavish of Wing.
