In October 2021, search crews pulled from the Ohio River in Indiana an SUV that belonged to an Ohio mother missing since 2002 along with her two young children, authorities said Friday.

Side sonar scan technology led divers to the 1997 Nissan Pathfinder Thursday near Aurora in southeastern Indiana, Indiana State Police said Friday in a news release.

The vehicle was registered to Stephanie Van Nguyen, who in 2002 disappeared with her 4-year-old daughter, Kristina, and 3-year-old son, John.

On Jan 7, DNA testing has confirmed that a bone found in an SUV pulled last fall from the Ohio River in Indiana is from an Ohio woman who vanished in 2002 along with her two young children, authorities said Tuesday, according to AP.

Dearborn County Coroner Cameron McCreary learned Friday the bone had been confirmed as belonging to Stephanie Van Nguyen, who was 26 when she disappeared with her 4-year-old daughter, Kristina, and 3-year-old son, John, Indiana State Police said.

Stephanie Van Nguyen, who was from Delhi Township in southwestern Ohio, left a note in April 2002 saying she was going to drive into the Ohio River, but her vehicle was not located at the time, police said.

Nguyen and her two children disappeared in April 2002 in her 1997 Nissan Pathfinder. A renewed search led to the discovery of Nguyen’s vehicle in the Ohio River near Lesko Park in Aurora, Indiana in October 2021.

The 1997 Nissan Pathfinder was found in October submerged in the river near Aurora in southeastern Indiana and a subsequent search of the SUV led to the discovery of one bone, believed to be from a human.

After the vehicle was removed from the river, anthropologists from the University of Indianapolis assisted investigators in searching the vehicle for human remains. The vehicle was located at a depth of over 50 feet and was approximately 300 feet from the bank of the river.

One bone, believed to be a human bone, was recovered from the vehicle and sent to a laboratory for further investigation.
