A Houston woman, lost in the floods brought by Hurricane Harvey, has been found dead in the same hotel that staff and first responders first searched for her more than a week ago.
Jill Renick, 48, a spa manager at the Omni Houston Hotel, got lost on Sunday, Aug. 27, after she tried to endure the storm as she stayed at her workplace.
After 5:15 a.m., Renick left her fourth-floor hotel room to help guests on the second floor, her sister, Pamela Eslinger, learned from an employee, according to Houston Chronicle.
But at 5:40 a.m. Renick called the front desk saying she was trapped. She also called 911, her sister said, and hotel guests heard cries from an elevator.
As the flood waters crept in, the staff shut down power in the building.
