“We’re just here to assist the Hinds County Sheriff’s Office and of course the victim’s family in an attempt to locate her body,” Pace said.

Owens was last seen on Tuesday, and a burned 2015 Acura TXL, believed to belong to her, was found around 6 a.m. on Wednesday in Edwards at Old Highway 80 and Jones Avenue.

Owens’s husband, Michael Owens, was arrested and is facing multiple charges in Hinds County.
