BUFFALO VALLEY, Okla. (AP) – Authorities say the body found in an overturned sport utility vehicle in southeastern Oklahoma has been confirmed as that of a missing nursing student who was traveling home to McAlester from Arkansas.

Oklahoma Civil Air Patrol Maj. Rick Rutledge told reporters the body found Sunday is that of 21-year-old Callie Morris. Morris had been reported missing when she failed to arrive in McAlester after leaving Hot Springs, Arkansas, about 4:30 p.m. Thursday.

The wreckage of the SUV was found overturned and partially submerged at Boggs Hollow Creek – just west of Buffalo Valley and about 40 miles east of McAlester. Investigators say it appears the SUV went off Highway 1 and struck a guardrail, then an embankment before landing in the water.
