Police recovered the body of a missing Columbus woman Friday, discovered inside her white SUV which was entangled in woods southwest of the intersection of Marr and Rocky Ford roads.
Vonda D. Fivecoat, 57, of the 2900 block of Beech Drive, was last seen alive at 7 p.m. Dec. 20, and her body appeared to have been in the vehicle at least a week, Bartholomew County Coroner Allen Smith said.
There was no immediately cause of death, which Smith said would be determined by an autopsy. As of Friday night, the date and place of the autopsy had yet to be determined, but Smith hoped to have results by Wednesday.
Lt. Matt Myers, spokesman for the Columbus Police Department, said there were no signs of foul play at the scene.
