A woman from Belton who was reported missing by her family has been found dead after being involved in a car accident in Nolanville on Friday.
The family of 51-year-old Delettra Whitman said a search party found her in her vehicle.
The Texas Department of Public Saftey said troopers were notified of a vehicle accident on I-14 eastbound around 2:16 p.m in the Nolanville Hill area near Dogridge Rd.
DPS said Whittman was driving a 2008 Chrysler 300 when she lost control, ran off the roadway, struck a tree and fell down into a ravine.
Whittman was pronounced dead at the scene.
Whittman had been reported missing after leaving Nolanville last Wednesday and never arriving at her destination in Belton.
A family member found the crashed vehicle today and notified the authorities.
The eastbound side of the roadway is still currently blocked for the removal of the crashed vehicle.
A GoFundMe has been set up to help the family with the funeral expenses.
