FOUKE, Ark. (AP) - Authorities say a body found on Interstate 49 in southwestern Arkansas is that of a missing woman.

Miller County Chief Deputy Michael McQuerrey told the Texarkana Gazette (https://bit.ly/2p7JDX8 ) that the state crime lab has identified the body as that of 49-year-old Elesa Kim Roberts of Fouke.

The body was found Wednesday afternoon by a state highway department work crew. McQuerrey says Roberts had been reported missing the day before.

Arkansas State Police have said the death is being investigated as a hit-and-run.
