LEFLORE COUNTY, Okla. – Search crews found a missing Oklahoma student on Sunday.

According to the LeFlore County Sheriff, crews found missing Henderson State University student Callie Morris’ vehicle overturned and partially submerged in water.

A body was found inside, and has been identified as that of the missing 21-year-old.

The development ends the three-day search for the nursing student who went missing Thursday night on her way from Hot Springs to McAlester, Okla., according to authorities.

Officials believe Morris drifted off the road before hitting a guard rail.  She then traveled an additional 30 feet before striking an embankment.  After that, officials say she went airborne for 60 feet, then landed in the water.

Her vehicle was found overturned and partially submerged in water near State Highway 1 at Boggs Hollow Creek in Latimer County, Oklahoma, where crews had narrowed their search over the weekend based on cell phone forensics data, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff said they do not suspect foul play at this time.

The accident is under investigation.
