UPDATE: Body found in Frisco may be woman missing since July 4


A dead body in a bag was located this evening in Frisco by a person who was in the Village of Salt Creek, a secluded subdivision on the soundside of Hatteras Island between Frisco Rod and Gun and the Quarterdeck restaurant.

Dare County Commissioner Allen Burrus confirmed that he had a call from the Dare County Sheriff’s Office about the body, which law enforcement officers believe may be that of Lynne Jackenheimer, 33, who disappeared sometime around July 4 while she and her former boyfriend, Nate Summerfield, were vacationing in Salvo with her two children.

The body was found in a marshy area, and apparently was dumped there and did not float there from another location.

Dare County law enforcement organizations have been searching intensively all week for any sign of Jackenheimer after they were contacted on Monday by police in her hometown of Ashland, Ohio.

Most of the search efforts have been concentrated in Salvo and other areas in the tri-villages.

Jackenheimer’s family and friends have been on Hatteras this week to assist with the search.

The boyfriend, Nate Summerfield, dropped Jackenheimer’s children with their grandparents in Ohio last weekend, and he, too, is missing. He may have confessed to a family member that he killed Jackenheimer.

The Dare County Sheriff’s Office could not be reached Saturday evening for more information.
