A relative of a missing Bixby woman says the 25-year-old's body was found outside Chouteau today. Laci Dawn Hill had been missing since December 23rd. Her brother-in-law Michael Hill told reporters today that the body had been identified.

Investigators found Hill's purse and the body of a woman this afternoon in a dilapidated building outside of Chouteau. Law officers are still searching for the man who allegedly used her credit cards after her disappearance. F-B-I spokesman Dan Vogel says Steven Ray Thacker was familiar with the area where the body and purse were found. Hill's family and friends had held out hope that she would be found alive. They had offered a $20,000 reward for her safe return.
