WRIGHTSTOWN — The Brown County Sheriff’s Office says it believes a body found Monday morning belongs to missing a Wrightstown teenager.

Authorities had been searching for Daniela Velazquez, and during a Tuesday news conference, the Brown County Sheriff’s Office said they believe they found her body, according to WLUK TV.


The sheriff’s office said that Velazquez’s vehicle was found after it had gone off the road into a ditch and that a frozen body was found about a quarter mile from the vehicle.

The sheriff’s office is waiting on positive identification from the medical examiner’s office, but Brown County Sheriff’s Office Capt. David Poteat says they are confident the body is Velazquez. They also believe the cause of death to be hypothermia but are waiting for that to be confirmed.

The sheriff’s office says that there is no reason to suspect foul play and believe it to be a “tragic accident.”

Velazquez, 17, was last seen about 10:30 p.m. Saturday from her home in Wrightstown.

If you have any more information on the case, please contact the Brown County Sheriff’s Office at 920 391 7450 (opt 8).
