A man, his fiancé and his daughter were found dead inside a crashed car at the bottom of a ravine in Tennessee two weeks after they disappeared.
Jeremy Cook, 39, Johanna Manor, 28, and their daughter, Adalicia Manor, 8, were last seen on January 16.
Relatives of the three became worried about not answering calls, not coming to work, and Adalicia being absent from school. WKRN.
Police said a welfare check found on January 21 at his home in Hickman County, Tenn., found nothing suspicious.
A missing report was filed two days later.
“Unfortunately, on January 26, officers received a ping of their phone, which led to the bodies of Johanna, Adalicia and Jeremy,” wrote Manor’s sister, Jennifer Biggs, on a gofundme Page created to cover family funeral costs.
“They were destroyed by being hit by a piece of snow, causing them to fall 100 feet into the forest below.”
The owner of the property near where the bodies were found said he did not see his vehicle in the trees.
“I’m always down here on property,” told Bradley Caldwell WSMV.
“My friends were here, and they were leaving,” he said. “They said, ‘There are two officers of the law in your way.’ I came to see.”
Caldwell and the police officer did not notice anything unusual on the property.
“That Hickman County official said he walked over here twice and didn’t see it,” Caldwell explained. “He just had a hunch. He went back the third time, parked the car, and looked back.”
Caldwell said the car was found about 38 meters ago in the woods.
The investigation continues.
