SCAMMON, KANSAS - A Midland woman's body has been found in the area of Scammon, Kansas early Monday morning.

According to our NBC affiliate, KODE, in Joplin, Missouri, 35-year-old Shannon Fonda was found near the corner of Katy and Main Street.

The sheriff's office says she is from Midland and had been in the Cherokee County area for at least 36 hours.

They're not sure what she was doing in the area but they're in contact with her family.

Deputies found Fonda's body and a car in a field just north of Scammon after someone called it in.

But it's unclear if she was inside of the car or if foul play was suspected.

Fonda's body has been sent off to Kansas City for an autopsy which is expected to take place on Tuesday morning.
