Remains Of Woman Missing Since 1979 Found In Texas Lake

GRANBURY (April 18, 2014) Skeletal remains found inside a truck recovered from Lake Granbury may be those of a woman who’s been missing for 35 years.

The declining level of the lake revealed a portion of the 1970s-model Chevrolet truck and a passerby spotted it on Thursday.

While inspecting the truck*s cab, investigators found the skeletal remains and a purse containing objects with Helen Holladay's name on them.

Holladay was 45 years old when she disappeared in September 1979.

Her husband, Herman, was a suspect in her disappearance, but he was never charged and has since died.

Authorities have notified Holladay*s two surviving daughters.

DNA tests will confirm whether the remains are the missing woman’s.

The results are expected within about two months.
