My wife's cousin, Diane Tanselle, has been missing since last Friday. Here's yesterday's news story.

This morning they found a van near Tom Kessinger's home; Emily just called and said the detective working the case told her they suspected that there is a "deceased person" inside the van and they're waiting for forensics to arrive before opening the van.

Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - WHAS11 News has learned that a van police say is connected to the case of a woman missing since last weekend, has been found.

The van was found at the Post Oak apartment homes in the 8100 block of New Lagrange Road.

Diane Tanselle was last seen Friday evening at her tanning salon in Lyndon.

Evidence found in the home of her former business partner, Thomas Kessinger, may place Diane Tanselle near or inside his home around the time she was reported missing.

Kessinger is a person of interest in the case.

Court documents show blood was found in his home and a cell phone-possibly Tanselle's-was found in his backyard.

People who work near the salon also say they saw signs of a struggle behind Tanselle's business.

Kessinger is being held on a $100,000 bond.

WHAS11.com has a crew at the scene and WHAS11.com will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
