SENECA, Ill. - Dozens of people are searching a remote area in northern Illinois for a mother of four who vanished after a car crash that killed her husband.

Forty-year-old Tanya Shannon of Ransom was believed to be riding with her husband when their car crashed shortly after they left a holiday party. A deputy found the wreck early Sunday.

Authorities say 41-year-old Dale Shannon was dead behind the wheel and footprints in the snow led away from the car in the rural area about 70 miles southwest of Chicago.

Steve Smith of LaSalle County Search and Rescue told WSPL Radio that searchers are looking in an expanded area and probing snow banks with poles.

Authorities say Tanya Shannon may be dead and her body may be under the snow.
