The body of a missing Pennsylvania mother has been found in a shallow grave more than two weeks after her disappearance.
The remains of Jennifer Brown, 43, from Limerick Township, were wrapped in plastic when she was found on Wednesday, according to CBS Philadelphia.
Ms Brown was reported missing when she didn’t pick up her eight-year-old son from his bus stop.
The Montgomery County District Attorney, Kevin Steele, said the mother’s remains were located only partly buried on Wednesday afternoon in Royersford, about 30 miles northwest of Philadelphia. She was located less than two miles from her Limerick home.
“We have been engaging in an intensive investigation and I can’t tell you how many people have worked through this and helped in this case to try to locate her,” Mr Steele said, according to CBS. “And we hoped and prayed that she would be safe and she is not.”
The body of Ms Brown will be taken to the office of the coroner for an autopsy. Prosecutors haven’t said if a suspect has been identified.
Ms Brown was last seen in Limerick on 3 January and the next day, she didn’t appear to pick up her son from his bus stop.
