A Strong woman who had been missing since Wednesday was found deceased about 2:50 p.m. Sunday, the victim of a motor vehicle accident.
Stephanie Deeanna Moon, 52, had last been seen by people who knew her on Wednesday, and she last spoke with family members on Tuesday. She indicated that she planned to visit a Veterans Administration facility in Monroe, LA, or in Little Rock, but there was no information indicating that she had visited either.
A preliminary Arkansas State Police report said that Moon was driving her 2013 Toyota Tacoma near 8542 U.S. 82 East, just west of Strong, when it left the roadway and traveled about 200 feet before striking a tree.
The Union County Sheriff’s Office confirmed on Sunday that Moon had been found.
“We are sad to report that that Ms. Moon has been located, the victim of a one vehicle traffic accident. Her family has been notified. The Arkansas State Police are investigating the accident. Please keep Ms. Moon’s friends and family in your prayers,” the statement said.
Moon was an English teacher at El Dorado High School. The school district also issued a statement.
“El Dorado Schools is deeply saddened by the passing of El Dorado High School teacher Deeanna Moon. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends, co-workers, and students at this time. We send our sincere condolences to her family.”
