BESSEMER, Ala. (AP) - Police in Alabama say the body of a missing 22-year-old woman has been found near railroad tracks in Bessemer.

Bessemer police Chief Mike Roper tells Al.com that the body of Crystal Vasquez was found Sunday afternoon by family members who were searching the area.

Vasquez was reported missing to Birmingham police on March 6. Roper says it’s unclear why the family was searching for Vazquez near the Bessemer train tracks.

He says her death is unclassified at this time and there were no obvious signs of foul play. An autopsy to determine Vazquez’s cause of death is set for Monday at the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office.
