PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. - Several law enforcement agencies are working to identify a body found in Clewiston, about 80 miles southwest of Palm Beach Gardens, where deputies are searching for a woman who was last seen Sunday.
A body of a woman was found in a sugarcane field Thursday afternoon, according to the Hendry County Sheriff's Office.
"We received a call from some workers out here that were doing some field maintenance, and they had happened upon or stumbled upon a body," said Hendry County Sheriff's Office Captain Susan Harrelle.
Since Monday, deputies and volunteers have been searching for Kimberly Lindsey, a 49-year-old nurse at Bak Middle School of the Arts in West Palm Beach.
"Detectives will follow up with Hendry County Sheriff's Office, Fort Myers Police Department and Lee County Sheriff's Office to determine if this unidentified body has any ties to Palm Beach County," read a statement from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.
On Thursday, one of Lindsey's daughters pleaded for help.
"Please, even one person seeing her face and knowing what she looks like could a world of difference, it could mean her coming home to us, her family," said Sarah Lambert.
Lambert said her mother texted her Sunday after coming home from a trip, but she never showed up for work Monday at Bak, where she's been employed for two years.
Anyone with information about Lindsey is asked to call the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office at 561 688-3400, or any other law enforcement agency.
