GRANDVIEW, Mo. (AP) - The body of what is believed to be a Kansas City-area driver who had been missing since an accident last week has been found in a wooded area near the crash site.
KCTV-TV reports that relatives on Sunday found the body in Grandview. The victim’s name has not been released.
Police were called Wednesday night to a report of an accident. Officers searched but found nothing in the area that night.
Two days later, police learned the driver was missing and they re-searched the area but again found nothing.
Relatives of the victim formed their own search party and found a body Sunday afternoon. Police believe the body is that of the missing driver but are awaiting official confirmation from the medical examiner.
