Investigation continues after Kansas skydiver’s body located

CUSHING, Okla. (AP) — Investigators are trying to determine how a Kansas skydiver was separated from her parachute harness during a jump in Oklahoma.

The body of 26-year-old Sheralynn Neff was found Monday by authorities south of an airport near Cushing, Oklahoma. Neff was reported missing on Sunday after she made a jump with the Oklahoma Skydiving Center.

Cushing police Chief Tully Folden says Neff’s parachute harness was found in a tree about 5 miles away.

The Oklahoman reports the Federal Aviation Association is assisting with the investigation. FAA spokeswoman Lynn Lunsford has said the agency’s main focus is determining whether the parachute was packed properly and if the harness was in good shape.
