WAYNESVILLE, Mo. -- State troopers recovered the body of a 54-year-old woman from Dixon who disappeared on April 28. Divers found Deborah Cirrincione's body and her Jeep on Wednesday afternoon. It was submerged in the Gasconade River near Riddle Bridge between Waynesville and Dixon.
Wednesday morning, troopers were sweeping the Gasconade River with electronic instruments when they registered a strong image that appeared to be a vehicle on its side in a deep pocket of water. Due to the swift and strong current at that location, they requested additional divers to increase the safety factor for the troopers when they entered the swift water.
Divers entered the water about 2:30 and were able to remove the Jeep and the body. Pulaski County Coroner Mikel Harkness was on scene and immediately notified the family of the search results.
Pulaski County Sheriff J.B. King thanked all the volunteers who came out to support this search. He said Cirrincione's family also appreciated their efforts.
