body_foundHARDIN CO., Ill.—Disclosure has confirmed that the body found in Franklin County today is NOT that of missing woman Chrissy Williams.

We learned of the discovery in a location in Franklin County about an hour ago (2:30 p.m. Sunday, January 5, 2014), when it was announced that authorities were investigating the body of a female having been found.

Contact was made with Hardin County, where the search has been on for Chrissy Williams, missing since December 2, 2013, and Hardin confirmed that the body is not that of Williams.

A press release out of Franklin gives details:

Christopher, Illinois police and the Franklin County coroner’s office are investigating after a woman’s body was found in a reservoir.

Franklin County Coroner, Marty Leffler said he was notified around 8:40 a.m. Sunday by that a vehicle was found partially submerged in the New Christopher Reservoir on West Center Road in rural Mulkeytown, and that a body was visible near the vehicle.

When police arrived they found the submerged black pickup truck with the driver door open and a visible body floating in the water near the bed of the truck. Christopher police then requested the Franklin County coroner and the Rend Lake dive team to come to the scene.

Rend Lake dive team members recovered the body and secured the vehicle.

Leffler says the victim was identified as 35-year-old Amanda Louise Harvill of Christopher.

An autopsy will be performed. Leffler says alcohol was found inside the cab of the pickup, and is suspected to be a factor in the investigation.

This case remains under the investigation of the Christopher Police Department and the Franklin County Coroner’s office.

The search for Chrissy Williams continues.
