BLACKWOOD, N.J. (CBS) — Police are investigating the discovery of a body found during a search for a missing woman in Gloucester Township, Camden County.

Authorities confirmed the body of a woman was found just before noon Monday less than one mile from the Lakeview Apartments along the 500 block of Lower Landing Road in Blackwood, New Jersey.

The Camden County Prosecutor’s office would not immediately confirm the body was that of 59-year-old Carol Reiff who lives at that apartment complex. Reiff was reported missing by her family over the weekend after she failed to arrive for a planned visit in Manahawkin, New Jersey (Read related story).

Reiff’s family told investigators earlier that she had not been heard from since a conversation they had with her on Thursday.

Officials say the cause of death and the identity of the deceased will not be determined until an autopsy is conducted, which is expected to happen on Tuesday.
