The search for a missing Cass County woman has ended with the discovery of her body in a vehicle which was located upside down in a creek. Authorities say a pickup driven by 47-year old Stacy Denise Casey, of Griswold, was located by Cass County Emergency Management officials at around 10 a.m. today just off of Wichita Road, about two and one-half miles east of Highway 71.
Casey was pronounced dead at the scene. Foul play is not suspected in connection with the crash. The Sheriff’s office says it appears the accident had taken place sometime during the day on Saturday. A short time before she was located, the Sheriff’s Office had issued a press release asking for the public’s help finding her.
Denise Casey had been missing since early Saturday afternoon, when she was last seen at the Subway restaurant located inside the Wal-Mart Store in Atlantic.
