Body Found Could Be Missing Local Woman

Pamlico County authorities think they've found the body of a missing woman.

Authorities say a woman's body was found along Highway 306, north of Grantsboro Saturday around 11 a.m. The identity of the woman has not been confirmed but officials say it appears to be that of Laura Edwards, who has been missing since October 25th. They say Edwards vehicle was found in the same area as the body, but again, her identity will not be confirmed until the autopsy is performed at the beginning of next week.
