Parke County Sheriff offers update on missing subject

Parke County Sheriff Jason Frazier took to social media Sunday evening with an update in a missing person's case dating back to June. 


"On today's date at 5 p.m., I received a call from a local realtor. The realtor was showing a residence and property to some potential buyers, when they discovered Betty Jane Capps' 2007 Ford Focus. This location is in the rural Rockville area. The vehicle was found approximately 200 yards off the roadway, down an embankment. Human remains were found near the vehicle," Frazier wrote in a post. 


Frazier said deputies with the Parke County Sheriff's Department, Indiana State Police's Crime Scene and the Parke County Coroner's Office were on the scene and investigating. 


"Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends," Frazier wrote. 


Capps was last seen on June 29 at approximately 4 p.m. in Mecca, Indiana, when she and her vehicle disappeared. 


The sheriff's department had conducted multiple searches using drones, wing aircraft and off road vehicles searching for Capps.
