FULTON, Ark. (AP) - Search crews have returned to the Red River in southwestern Arkansas to search for the body of an Ashdown woman who's been missing since she either jumped or fell from an Interstate 30 bridge into the river near Fulton.
Arkansas Game and Fish spokesman Keith Stephens said Thursday that divers are searching beneath the Interstate 30 bridge for the body of 43-year-old Janis Burris Northcross. Stephens says the search resumed after a cadaver dog indicated a body may be under the bridge.
Northcross and a man were standing on the icy bridge following a minor accident on Feb. 8 when an 18-wheeler jackknifed and skidded toward them. Both wound up in the river, but the man was able to make it to shore and survived.
