NAPA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a body found in the Napa River last week belongs to a Napa woman reported missing earlier this month.

Crystal Lea McCarthy was reported missing Dec. 14, the Napa County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. Deputies found the 37-year-old’s body nine days later in the Napa River. The office says a cause of death is pending further testing and results will not be available for several weeks.

Authorities say they continue to investigate surrounding McCarthy’s disappearance and gave no other information.
