WHITESBORO, N.J. (CBS) — Investigators believe a body found earlier this week in Whitesboro, New Jersey may be that of a missing teen. The unidentified body was found Wednesday in a wooded area along the 200 block of East Lena Street in the Whitesboro section of Middle Township.
The human remains have not been positively identified but investigators say evidence found at the scene leads detectives to believe the individual is 18-year-old Leila Bellamy.
Bellamy was last seen on July 14.
