Authorities seek help locating missing Tecumseh woman
Michigan State Police say her disappearance is not related to Jessica Fox case
TECUMSEH, Michigan (WTVG) - Dee Warner, 52, is a wife and a mother. The Sheriff of Lenawee County says it has now been 10 days since any of her family members have heard from her.
Authorities in Lenawee County say Dee Warner, 52, was last seen at her home outside Tecumseh near Tipton April 25th, 2021. Michigan State Police say the discovery of the body of Jessica Fox that same month near the River Raisin area is a separate, unrelated case. pic.twitter.com/2NS6jJRN5z— Tony Geftos (@TonyGeftos13abc) May 6, 2021
“It’s been trying on the family, I do know that,” says Lenawee County Sheriff Troy Bevier. “At this point, we have not heard anything from her. Nothing on Facebook, and no phone calls.”
Warner was last seen April 25 at her house on Munger Rd. in Franklin Township, between Tecumseh and Tipton. The area near her home has farmland and woods.
Last month, the body of another missing woman, Jessica Fox, was found in a wooded area near Tecumseh along the River Raisin. However, authorities say the two cases are not related.
Michigan State Police posted to Twitter: “The Death of Jessica Fox is considered an isolated incident and the parks and recreational areas in and around Lenawee County are safe to enjoy and explore.”
“Unfortunately, (the two missing persons cases) happened in close time and proximity and that has the public worried, but like I said, we don’t have any information that they’re related and at this point, we believe that Dee is still missing and, you know, we’re hoping that she contacts the family and lets them know where she is and that there’s a good ending to this,” said Sheriff Bevier.
If you have any information or if you see Dee Warner, you can submit a tip at www.p3tips.com/431 or contact Crime Stoppers of Lenawee at (517) 266-6161 or (877) 276-8477.
