BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a woman’s body was found in a truck that was discovered crashed in the Caney River near Bartlesville.

The OHP says an off-duty Osage County deputy driving on Highway 75 saw the pickup truck upside down in the river Saturday morning.

Trooper Dwight Durant told reporters that the body has not been identified, but said the truck matches the description of a pickup belonging to a woman in the area who was reported missing earlier in the week.

Durant says it appears the truck had been in the water for a few days.
