Missing Shoppers Found


A representative of the Warren County Sheriff's office confirmed that the remains of Otterbein Retirement Community residents Ellen Walters, 68 and Ada Wasson, 80, were found Sunday morning near Campbellsburg, Kentucky.

No signs of foul play were found.

They had been missing since April 19, believed to be headed to an outlet mall near Columbus, OH or Carrolton, KY.

Autopsies are planned for today as well as press conferences by officials and representatives of the families.

Details emerging are that the women got lost on the way to an outlet mall in Kentucky and ended up in a ditch.

The remains of Ada Wasson were found 600 feet in a straight line from the car back to the highway. She ws the older of the two, but in better health.

How incredibly sad.

I wonder why they never carried cell phones ...
