Authorities now say the two bodies found at Lake Manawa State Park in Council Bluffs on Sunday night are those of a missing Nebraska mother and son. The FBI reports the bodies found in a wooded area near the lake are those of 41-year-old Charlotte Schilling of Plattsmouth and her ten-year-old son, Owen.
The two were last seen on May 10th when Schilling picked up her son from a school in Bellevue. Security video shows them visiting a convenience store near Lake Manawa that day as well as a Kohl’s department store in Council Bluffs. The following day, Schilling’s vehicle was found parked at Lake Manawa.
Her cell phone and wallet were located inside. Authorities have not released a cause of death but are not looking for suspects. The investigation continues.
