The body of a missing Wylie mother has likely been found. She's been missing for over a month.
On Sunday, November 09, at approximately 2:00 pm, Wylie Investigators received a call from a search and rescue crew advising they have located what they believed to be a van in the Muddy Creek Farms pond located at 2500 McMillen Road in Wylie.
After a Collin County dive team took to the waters, they discovered the silver Chevrolet Venture with a body believed to be that of Almaz Gebremedhin inside. Gebremedhin had been missing since October 2, 2014.
The family hired a private detective to assist in her search. The private detective then hired a search and recovery team out of Illinois who arrived in the area and began the search this morning. They were instructed to search both sides of the roadway from the residence to where Gebremedhin worked.
They came the 2500 block of McMillen where the pond was fenced in. They utilized their sonar showing the van in the pond. Wylie Police Officers were dispatched to the area to assist in the search as well as Collin County Sheriff's Office Dive team. The family was immediately notified by Wylie Investigators.
This case is still under investigation as to how the vehicle ended up in the pond.
