    The body of a woman pulled from under the ice in the D & R canal in Lambertville, New Jersey, has been positively identified as Sarah Majoras.

    Majoras was a beloved bartender in the neighboring town of New Hope, Pennsylvania. The discovery of her body late Wednesday ended a four day, intense search by family, friends, law enforcement and volunteers.

    The medical examiner who performed the autopsy said there were no signs of trauma to Majoras' body. All of her clothing and her belongings were intact. Investigators have said all along they didn't suspect foul play, but are open to any suggestions or leads about how Sarah ended up in the canal.

    She was last seen, in surveillance video, crossing the bridge from New Hope over to Lambertville early Saturday morning as she walked to the home she shared with her boyfriend.

    When she never made it home, the boyfriend called 911 and the search for Sarah began.

    A break in the case came late Wednesday when a freelance photographer found a leather boot in the canal. She snapped a photo and alerted police. Friends said the boot was Sarah's. Shortly after that, the 39-year-old's body was found in the canal behind the Lambertville train station.
