Crash victim’s wife still missing, search continues

Posted by wlpo on December 6, 2010

The search for a woman missing since a car crash killed her husband in rural La Salle County will continue into a third day.

Dozens of people spent hours Monday searching Brookfield Township for 40-year old Tanya Shannon of Ransom.  She’s the wife of 41-year old Dale Shannon who was found dead in a one-car crash early Sunday morning off of the Grand Ridge Mazon Blacktop.

The couple was apparently headed home after a party in Streator.

Investigators think Tanya Shannon was in the car.  Sheriff Tom Templeton says there were footprints in the snow and one of Tanya’s shoes was left behind.

Searchers will back out at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
