If you didn't have water in the cooling system you may have killed the motor. Does it still crank?

Killed the motor,and probably the transmission as well.No one but a local will know where those towns are,so better to say how many miles you drove,without the belt.
If you're saying the car is currently running,your issue is just the a/c,sounds like the compressor seized and the a/c clutch is self destructing.
