    The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department said Benhardt’s wife — Sussette Benhardt, also 50 — is considered missing and endangered.

    William Benhardt was a former member of the Troy School Board.

    This doesn't sound good. From the article:

    Authorities said the couple, who operate the Snow Hill Nurserynortheast of Troy, Mo., were going through a divorce and were last seen arguing Wednesday morning outside a barn next to the business. The two had still been living together at their home on the same property.
    Divorce can be so stressful without the added friction of dividing a business. I hope Sussette is safe somewhere and calls the police.

    Please give my condolences to your parents, it's hard to lose someone you're close to under any circumstances.

    During the search of the residence, Sussette’s cellular phone was located in a washing machine along with a covert digital recording device. Early this morning during a forensic analysis of the recorder detectives discovered a digital audio recording.

    The audio file indicated an assault on Sussette by William.
    http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/c...a0b391caa.html

    Teams of officers and firefighters, including divers and K-9 units, spent Saturday searching the couple’s 128-acre property, including their Snow Hill Nursery, where Sussette Benhardt was last seen arguing with her husband Wednesday morning.

    William and Sussette Benhardt, both 50, were going through a divorce. They have three grown children.

    Binder said officers suspended the search about 7 p.m. Saturday and will proceed with “a more focused approach to include multiple properties” the couple own.

    Assisting the sheriff’s office Saturday were members of Lincoln County Fire Protection District No. 1 and Missouri Region “C” Technical Rescue Team.

    Binder said officers with the St. Charles County internet crimes unit assisted in analyzing the cellphone and recording device.

    Binder said a murder-suicide is a possibility, but deputies have no way to know whether Sussette Benhardt is alive or dead.
