GENERIC: crime tape, police line

GRANDVIEW, MO (KCTV) -- A search group of family members on Sunday found a driver's body in a wooded area of Grandview on Sunday, four days after that driver crashed on Byars Road.

Grandview police responded around 9 p.m. last Wednesday to Byars Road near 133rd Terrace in reference to a crash. Officers found nothing in the area that night, though, despite a search at the time.

Two days later, police found out that the likely driver had not been seen since that night. They re-searched the area, but did not find anything.

A search party formed by family members of the missing driver searched the area Sunday afternoon, and ended up finding a body in a nearby wooded location. Police believe the body is that of the missing driver, but is awaiting official confirmation from the medical examiner, according to the Grandview Police Department.
