A Kansas City woman missing for two months has been found in her car at the bottom of the Missouri River, reports the Kansas City Star. "We just got the news—there’s a body in her car," said Liz Anderson, mother of 20-year-old Toni Anderson, on Friday evening. "There is somebody inside." Toni Anderson went missing on January 15 after leaving her job at a bar at 4am; she was pulled over by a police officer, then disappeared on her way to get gas.

"We have searched for her by land, air, sonar, water," says a KC police rep. "Our thoughts and prayers are with Toni Anderson’s family this evening." Anderson's car was found near Platte Landing Park, and the Star notes that foul play is not suspected. "I just don’t know how she got there," says Anderson's mom. "It doesn’t make sense, one bit."
