Woman Whose Car Found Abandoned on SR 240 Still Missing
Benton County Sheriff's officials issued an update Tuesday morning.
No new leads in missing woman case
The BCSO says still no new leads in the case of a missing woman, whose car was found abandoned alongside SR 240 near the Hanford Rattlesnake Gate, about 15 miles northwest of West Richland and Richland.
As we had reported Monday, 54-year-old Toni Rae Atchley was apparently reported missing, but the BCSO has not officially released that.
What we do know is, that her car was found abandoned by that Hanford gate, her phone and other personal effects still inside her fully operational 2017 Toyota Carolla.
The vehicle was towed as evidence
No word if any leads or evidence has come from a search of her car, it was towed from the roadway to the Sheriff's Department for examination.
The BCSO released this information Tuesday:
"Toni is still missing. The Sheriff's Office Detective Division is investigating and extensive searches are continuing. Anyone with information is encouraged to call dispatch at 509-628-0333"
