BODY OF MISSING PREGNANT WOMAN FOUND

The body of a 26-year old pregnant woman was found this (Thursday) morning in Cypress Creek in Harris County.

Eqqusearch volunteers found the body of Melissa Sowders after an extensive search that began a week ago, when she was first reported missing.

Her boyfriend, Jason Sanford had dropped her off at work at 6:15 last Thursday morning.  Deputies found her white Honda Accord Friday night on Interstate 45 near Richey Road.

Texas Eqqusearch would only say they had good reason to believe her body would be found near the interstate.

Sanford said Sowders was suppose to go meet her ex-husband and their youngest daughter at the McDonalds on FM 1960 near Kuykendahl Road.

Detectives confirm the ex-husband has been questioned but they have not named him as a suspect.

The case remains under investigation and if you know anything call the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Homicide Unit at 713 967 5810 or  Harris County Crime Stoppers at 713 222 8477.
