Focus Turns To Illinois River For Missing Marseilles Woman

Posted by wlpo on April 2, 2011

The search continues for a Marseilles woman last seen March 18th.

Members with Ottawa River Rescue today are searching the Illinois River for 43-year old Susan Schultz.  The search Friday focused on Illini State Park.

Marseilles Police Chief Jim Hovious says surveillance video from a downtown business caught a woman he thinks could be Schultz walking south across the bridge just after midnight March 19th.  Schultz is described as five foot six, weighing 200 pounds with brown hair and glasses.

Investigators are concerned because Schultz has a history of mental and physical disabilities.  She also has diabetes and would be in need of insulin.

Hovious doesn’t think Schultz is anywhere besides Marseilles since she has no car, cell phone or credit cards.
