Forsyth Police Chief Roger Ellis reports the body was found by a citizen Wednesday evening, under a bridge on U-S Highway 160. The location of the body was concealed from view by anyone who was traveling thru the area on the lower bridge leading from Shadowrock Park and from the bridge on U-S Highway 160 on Forsyth Hill.

Taney County Sheriff Jimmie Russell say his office has received numerous inquiries concerning any connection between the discovered body and 30-year-old Amanda Hillhouse, who was reported missing on October 24.

Russell adds Hillhouse remains a missing person’s case and asks anyone with any information to contact the Taney County Sheriff’s Office.

The autopsy has been scheduled for Friday and Ellis says it could take several days or weeks before the identity of the victim is known to authorities. Ellis adds investigators have concluded that the incident appears to be non-suspicious and there are no concerns of public endangerment involved.
