More than 40 years later A Joplin woman's mother maybe found

Updated:

More than 40 years later Carla Jo Irick's mother is still missing, and now the family may get the answers they've been searching for. 

Irick says, "You just don't know what to do, my uncle was convinced that they were in Foss Lake several years after she disappeared."
 
Authorities believe Irick's mother, Nora Duncan may be one of the six people found in Foss Lake near Elk City, Oklahoma.
 
"I've always said all these years that I wish I found out before I die because you know I'm getting older," said Irick. 
 
In 1969 three people, two men one woman disappeared. Earlier this week dive teams discovered two vehicles in about 12 feet of mucky water.
One vehicle pulled from the water was a 1950's Chevrolet which belonged to Duncan's close friend. 

"I feel in my heart that it's her because it fits everything I've known for 40 years." 

Last year Irick turned over her DNA to an anthropologist, so if her mother's remains were ever found they could be identified. 

"It would just be a relief to me. The thing that really bother me was every mother's day."
