    Officials said the body of an Illinois woman, who vanished in December when the vehicle she and her husband were driving in was swept away by floodwaters in Indiana, has been found.

    A resident in Pike County, Ind. found the body lying on top of corn stalk debris around 1:45 p.m. Friday near the mouth of a creek that feeds into the White River in southern Indiana, according to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources.

    The body was identified Saturday as Cathryn McGill, of Des Plaines, Ill., according to the Pike County, Ind. Coroner’s office.

    McGill, 31, went missing Dec. 29 after floodwaters swept her husband's vehicle off of Indiana 257 near southern Indiana's Pike County and Daviess County line. That area is near the East Fork of the White River.

    Waterfowl hunters who saw the vehicle swept away raced their boat to the area and rescued 35-year-old Adam McGill after hearing his screams for help. But they couldn't find his wife.
