Hardin County, Ill.- The Hardin County coroner confirms the female's body found in a red SUV is that of missing woman Chrissy Williams.

Williams' car was found in the Ohio River yesterday (Mar. 20) in Rosiclare.

Williams was last seen in that area nearly four months ago.  Since then, there was no trace of her. That all changed with the latest search of the waterfront in Hardin County.

A search team out of Saint Louis brought the family results they've been trying to get. It took only about 20 minutes to pinpoint what had eluded them since December: Chrissy's red SUV at the bottom of the Ohio.

The family says that SUV was only 25 feet off land.

Chrissy's family now shifting their efforts to getting justice. They don't think Chrissy drove that car into the water herself.
