Evan & Sarah Nuessner

According to the Sherman Police Department, Sarah Nuessner’s body was found several miles downstream of where the crash occurred in Post Oak Creek.

“We want to thank everyone who has graciously donated items to aid the search efforts, but as this incident draws to a close, we are no longer in need of additional donations,” the Facebook post says.

“It’s truly horrible and shocking. Everyone is still just blown away & torn up. Evan & Sarah were truly fun, adventurous, kind, enjoyable people. They were constantly going to music festivals & on road trips. He’d just let us know Friday before they left that he was moving to Dallas with Sarah in Feb & was driving down after work that night to get started on his new job Saturday morning. Was planning on training for the weekend, then returning home. There are a million pics of those two on FB. They were great at documenting their adventures. I truly am blessed to have had the opportunity to minister their wedding back in October. I can’t believe their already gone. You’re going to find lots of pics of them smiling wide, which was what they both did constantly. Bright, wonderful souls,” Grey said.
