SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) - Police in Shawnee say a body found in the North Canadian River may be that of a missing Shawnee woman.

Det. Jason Crouch told reporters that the body was found Friday afternoon in about three feet of water about a half mile east of South Beard Bridge. Crouch says only that the body appears to be that of a woman in her 20s and may be a woman who was last seen on Tuesday and was later reported missing by her family.

Crouch says authorities have questioned one person about the woman’s death and are seeking a second person for questioning.

Crouch says the body was sent to the state medical examiner’s office for positive identification and to determine the cause of death.
