FLETCHER, Okla. (KSWO) - The Oklahoma Medical Examiner is working to identify a body found Tuesday morning in northeastern Comanche County, not far from a missing Anadarko woman’s pickup truck.

Authorities pulled the red pickup from the grass late Tuesday afternoon at NE 240th and Northeast North Drive east of Fletcher.

Its license plate matched the truck driven by Dawn Sherill, who’s been missing for several weeks.

A body was reportedly found in the area nearby, but investigators have not confirmed whether it is Sherill’s.

The Medical Examiner will determine the person’s identity and cause of death.

A landowner found the truck and body when he came out to mow.

Investigators said it appeared the truck was back there for more than a day.
