The 911 call for the woman who went missing in the Kern River has been released. 

The call was made by Rita Bello's boyfriend, Manuel. In the call, you can hear Manuel frantically asking for help. He tells dispatch to send emergency crews out quickly. 

Bello was reported missing on Monday night. According to Bello's boyfriend, the couple went out to the Kern River to get her disabled car. Bello's boyfriend says she was looking for her keys when she voluntarily went into the river and was swept away. She hasn't been seen since. 

Rescue crews are still looking for Bello. On Saturday, they plan on sending several boats out to search for any sign of her. 

23ABC spoke to Bello's boyfriend on Friday over the phone, but he said he was too upset to speak on camera.
