Press Release



(Marine City)  The vehicle belonging to a Casco Township woman who has been missing since May has been recovered from the St. Clair River.


According to St. Clair County Sheriff Mat King, the 2011 Ford Edge was located about 30 feet off shore of St. Clair Aggregates, located on South Belle River Avenue.  A body was found inside the vehicle, but is has not yet been positively identified.


A volunteer diving group, called Adventures with a Purpose, based in Oregon, used advanced SONAR technology to locate the vehicle this afternoon.  The family of Nadine Moses had reached out to the group, which states they have located 12 missing persons over the past year.


Once the vehicle was located, Adventures with a Purpose contacted the Sheriff’s Office.  The Sheriff’s Office Dive Team responded and attached cables from a Preferred Towing truck to the Ford Edge.  The SUV was then removed from the water and the body was removed from the vehicle.


“Detectives from our office are continuing the investigation,” said Sheriff King.  “We will be working hand in hand with the St. Clair County Medical Examiner’s Office to identify the body and hopefully bring closure to a grieving family.”  Members of Nadine Moses’ family were at the scene of the recovery.


Nadine Moses went missing from her Casco Township home on May 4th.  Family members contacted the Sheriff’s Office and an exhaustive search was conducted in an effort to locate the 84 year old woman.  Several law enforcement agencies were involved in land, water and aerial searches.


The Marine City Police Department, Michigan State Police, Marine City Fire Department and Tri-Hospital EMS also assisted at the scene of the recovery today.
