Truck of Man Last Seen in Mt. Vernon Is Found Submerged In Water Off I-70 Near Terre Haute, Indiana With Body Inside

Mt. Vernon Police say they have received information a truck owned by missing person Randall Super from Cove, Arkansas has been located in a body of water visible from Interstate 70 near Terre Haute, Indiana. The Clay County, Indiana Sheriff's Department later recovered the truck and found a body inside. An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday to identify the body and cause of death.

The 57-year-old Super was last seen getting into his truck at the Denny's Restaurant in Mt. Vernon in July. Family members say he was on a trip to Ohio. They were especially concerned because Super is diabetic and needs insulin medication. The motorist who saw the bumper of the vehicle protruding from the water stopped, further investigated, and obtained the license plate of the vehicle. After he 'googled' the license plate, he discovered the truck was associated with the missing persons report filed by Mt. Vernon Police.

The truck had apparently ran off the road through a fence, struck a tree, rolled over several times and landed in a body of water. Mt. Vernon Police say the individual described the truck which matched the description of Super's truck as well. Mt. Vernon Police then notified Clay County Indiana Sheriff's Department who located the truck and found a body inside.

Mt. Vernon Police say the man who spotted the truck may have seen it because the vehicle he was riding in was driving very slowly due to mechanical problems.
