Body of missing woman found in Berks Co.
The Northern Berks Regional Police and the Berks County Coroner's office said the body of a woman was found near Lake Ontelaunee in Maidencreek Township Saturday.
The coroner said the body was identified as Rebecca Mertz, 31, of Blandon.
Police said a search and rescue team was conducting a coordinated search in the area and came across the body.
The body was found in the area where an intense search for Mertz was being conducted just over a week ago. It's also near where officials found her abandoned car.
The coroner's office said Mertz's death was a suicide.
