Body Of Missing Charlotte Woman Found
WILKES COUNTY, N.C.--Police say the body of missing Charlotte woman Holly Fischer has been located.
Investigators say they were called to Highway 16 at the border of Wilkes and Ashe Counties around 10 p.m. Sunday night after a friend of the family noticed it looked like a vehicle had gone off the road.
Rescue crews tried to repel down an 1,000 foot embankment late Sunday night but could not because of rough terrain and darkness.
They resumed their search early Monday morning. Once they reached the vehicle, they found Fischer's body nearby.
The 39-year-old woman has been missing for a week. She was last seen leaving her parent's house in Knoxville, Tennessee.
