CRAVEN COUNTY, N.C. (WITN) - The Highway Patrol has identified the body of a woman pulled from the Neuse River along with a car on Monday.

Sgt. Heather Johnson tells WITN that the body of Shenethia Daniels, 40, of Greenville was recovered.

Troopers responded on Monday to the Spring Garden Boat Ramp on Northwest Craven Middle School Road on Monday after a car was found in the Neuse River. The car as well as Daniels were both removed that same day.

The Highway Patrol said that family of Daniels reached out to law enforcement after she and another person had not returned to Greenville from a trip to New Bern. Troopers believe that the two had left a New Bern bar prior to the discovery of Daniels’ body and the vehicle in the Neuse River.

A search continues at the boat ramp for a second person.

Troopers said the investigation is ongoing but tell WITN that no foul play is suspected at this time.
