Police searched the Baltimore area for months and Thursday they confirmed that the body of Phylicia Barnes has been found.

Barnes' body was one of two pulled from the Susquehanna River Thursday. The other body was a man, and it's not clear if there is any connection between the two. A cause of death for Barnes was not yet available. Barnes, who was from the small North Carolina town of Monroe, disappeared Dec. 28, while visiting older sibilings in Baltimore.

Police called the Barnes case one of the strangest and most vexing missing persons cases they had investigated, and, despite getting help from the FBI, they had few leads.
