STATESVILLE, N.C. (AP) - A woman’s body has been found in a creek in central North Carolina.

Police in Statesville told local media outlets they were called around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday after the body of a woman was found in a creek behind a home.

Neighbors said a contractor working on a home near the creek noticed the body.

Investigators are trying to determine the woman’s name. A woman had been reported missing in Statesville on June 1.

It was not immediately clear how she died.
