“The National Park Service greatly appreciates the community support we have received while looking for Hillary. Over 40 agencies have helped. And that includes on the ground, in the water, in the air; massive support. And then the community themselves -- individuals wanting to help.”

Sharma's body was discovered by rangers near the Highland Road bridge in Brecksville.That's about 2 miles north of where her car was discovered, in Boston Heights. No cause of death has been released.

Exactly if there was a murder they would have to report she took her own life

When will we learn the cause of death? We live here and if there's foul play, we have a right to know.
