A body found in the woods in Cape May County, New Jersey, may be that of a young woman missing since July, authorities said.
Detectives could not positively identify the remains, but evidence at the scene points to the possibility that it is 18-year-old Whitesboro resident Leila Bellamy, last seen July 14, the Middle Township Police Department said.
The body was discovered Wednesday in a “densely wooded area” along the 200 block of East Lena Street in the Whitesboro section of Middle Township as state police and MTPD officers conducted a follow-up search on a missing persons case, the department said.
