2 Hazelwood mothers worried about their missing kids
I think they misspelled her name in the news article.
I wonder if there are any bodies of water or steep embankments in the area. Itès possible they crashed the car.
It is a suburb of St.Louis, Mo which is along the Mississippi River. It has been experiencing flood in that river lately and lots of rain..
It did mention in the above article that he had borrowed his moms credit card to go get gas. I was wondering if any charges show up after that.
The bodies of a man and woman from Hazelwood were found in a car in floodwaters in St. Charles County Friday, according to one of their mothers.
Troopers with the Missouri Highway Patrol said the bodies were found near 1550 Harbor Drive in Portage Des Sioux. The bodies were believed to have been there for several days.
Diane Reinhardt told News 4 the bodies belonged to her son, John Reinhardt, 20, and his friend, Caitlyn Frangel, 19. The duo were last seen May 13 buying snacks at a Mobil Gas Station on Dunn Road.
Reinhardt told News 4 her son and Frangel were known to go for drives in that area because it cleared their heads. She said they originally searched the area but had to limit it because of floodwaters.
Reinhardt said she was happy their bodies were found but wishes more could have been done in terms of police blocking off flooded roads in the area. She also said there are no lights on that street at night and she thinks they unknowingly drove into the water.
Shortly after the bodies were found, the highway patrol said the car drove into floodwaters. No foul play is suspected.
This is a breaking news story and will be updated as more information is known.
Missing Hazelwood friends found dead in St. Charles County floodwaters
The river is 12 feet above flood stage and warnings have been broadcast all week but when I was a teen I didn't pay much attention to such things. The road where their car was found is immediately adjacent to the Missippi and is a dead end that forks off of Sioux Road. Maybe they planned to go park in the park there for some privacy. Too bad Sioux road wasn't blocked. Prayers for their families. Google Maps
Alerting to have Missouri added to thread title.
Once in a while Ole'Man River rears his head & says "take that" to humans....
RIP MR Reinhart & Ms. Frangel, peace & comfort to your families.
