Their vehicle was found crashed and hidden off the shoulder of Interstate 840 near Boston Theta Road ten days later.

Detectives believe the vehicle hit a patch of ice and crashed. All three were wearing seat belts, but it is believed they died on impact.

According to Tennessee Highway Patrol, the truck they were driving went over the median concrete wall and fell around 100 feet into a ravine.

The vehicle was found Wednesday after authorities were able to ping Cook's cell phone data to a general location. Investigators then searched on foot to find the vehicle.

Authorities say there is no indication of foul play and the crash appears to be weather-related.
