August 18, 2009 (LOCKPORT, Ill.) --
The body of a woman who had been reported missing from a mental health care facility was recovered from a nearby pond. Will County sheriff's police say the death appears to be an accident, and no charges will be filed. They say 52- year-old Cathy Neese was high functioning, but still disabled.
Neese was reported missing on Monday afternoon from Trinity Services in south suburban Lockport where she was visiting for therapy.
Investigators say she went to take out the garbage and never returned. The pond where she was found was behind the facility.
