DES MOINES, Iowa — The body of a woman reported missing from Yuma, Ariz., was found Tuesday in the back of a semitrailer delivering lettuce to a Hy-Vee grocery store distribution center in Iowa.

Sheila Kay Ross, 47, of McLoud, Okla., was reported missing Saturday by her husband, said Officer Clint Norred, a spokesman for the Yuma Police Department.

He said the Rosses arrived in their semi to pick up a load from a Dole plant in Yuma about 9:30 p.m. Saturday. Sheila Ross got out of the truck to get some paperwork but never returned, Norred said.

"After a while, Mr. Ross called us and the Yuma police searched the area and couldn't locate Mrs. Ross," Norred said.

Things like this are so sad to hear. Blessings to her family. I hope she didn't suffer. If someone killed her I hope they find them and make them pay.

This happened almost a year ago, don't know what ended up happening as far as the investigation is concerned. If I remember correctly, the husband became a suspect.

That's horrible. It really is sad, and a terrible tragedy. The husband always becomes a suspect though, and it's a shame when the husband is in trouble for something he didn't do. Of course there are those who are guilty too.

Yeah I remember reading that in The Trucker. And I couldn't figure out why the guy left Yuma and delivered the load. If Mrs. Duck was with me and turned up missing, I wouldn't f***ing leave without her. WTF was that guy thinking? Haul and deliver the load? Business as usual? Umm.. no, .. it's time for the dogs and helicopters, not "business as usual".

Not only would I not leave, nobody else would leave either, even if I had to un-hook from the trailer and block the exit with the bobtail. Not one truck would leave til she's found.

My Uncle taught me how to drive, his first rule was if I wasn't in the truck when he pushed in the valves(we had blue ones back then) he wasn't waiting around. I never tested that rule so don't know if he was seriouse or not but with him, I'm sure he would have left me there.

Don't pick on him to much, this new computer doesn't have spell check on it so I imagine I'll be typing like that sometimes

I hate you and the effort it takes to translate your dribble. Speak American already.

Funny.
He would have called it a character building lesson, I'm sure.
