The Bastrop County Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace said Friday that evidence found by a search party leads her to believe a body discovered Wednesday in a wooded area near Bastrop belonged to a 25-year-old Smithville woman who was listed as missing on Aug. 7.
Earlier on Thursday, the sheriff’s office issued a statement saying it could not confirm the deceased was Christine Mohler, who was listed as missing after she did not show up to work at a Bastrop fast food restaurant.
“With the evidence that was found today by searchers that scoured the property, I am led to believe it was (Mohler),” said Donna Van Gilder, Bastrop County Pct. JP 1. “I cannot say with 100 percent certainty that it was her.”
