Body of missing Indianapolis woman found on sandbar in Columbus' Flatrock River

According to WIBC, Watts and her husband were supposed to fly out to Washington, D.C., that night but she never made it home. Authorities were contacted when she didn't come home.

Watts is described as 5 feet 6 inches tall and 110 pounds with blonde hair and brown eyes and was last seen wearing black stretch trousers and a gray shirt.

Police said they don't know how 33-year-old Jacqueline Watts was killed. In a news conference officials revealed that her body was found at around 8:30 a.m, local time on Saturday on a sandbar less than half a mile from where her abandoned vehicle was found.

Jacqueline Watts's vehicle was found in the 2300 block of Riverside Drive in Columbus. The auto also contained Jacqueline's purse and mobile phone.

Watts' cause of death has not been released.

Police have not classified her death as a homicide, though they did say the circumstances surrounding her disappearance were "suspicious", WRTV reported.

Police say a missing woman was found dead Saturday morning in Bartholomew County.

"At this point we're not sure", Harris said.

"Our focus right now is supporting the family and making sure that we're doing everything right", Harris said.

Lt. Matt Harris with Columbus police says there has been a lot of misinformation spread on social media.

If you have any information where Jackie Watts may be found, please call Columbus police dispatch at 812-379-1689.
