Police in Kettering said they do not suspect foul play in the disappearance of Margaret Spilker.

She was last seen Saturday afternoon headed to the grocery store, and her vehicle was found that night.

The Dayton Daily News reported a dive team searched unsuccessfully for Spilker on Sunday, and crews worked Monday to pump water out of the 8-foot-deep pond.

Police found Spilker’s car after receiving reports about a submerged vehicle.
