Indiana Department of Natural Resources authorities announced Friday that a body was discovered early that afternoon at the site where a former Des Plaines woman went missing in December.
On Dec. 29, the vehicle occupied by Adam and Cathryn McGill was swept from State Road 257 into floodwaters of the White River.
Although Adam McGill was rescued by nearby hunters, Cathryn could not be found.
According to a news release Friday, a local resident discovered the body lying on top of some corn stalk debris near the mouth of a creek that feeds into the White River, in an area that was part of the initial search.
An autopsy is scheduled for this afternoon.
