Body found in search for missing Norwich woman

NORWICH, N.Y. (AP) - Searchers have found a body near a Walmart parking lot in central New York where they've been looking for a missing 51-year-old woman.

The Norwich City Police Department says is hasn't determined if the woman's body is that of Krista Kosowsky. She was reported missing by her husband after failing to show up for work on Friday.

Acres of flooded fields around the Norwich Walmart have been the target of searches since Kosowsky's gold Pontiac Grand Prix was found there by employees Monday evening.

Police with a dog discovered the body in water near a railroad right-of-way at about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Authorities say the woman's identity and cause of death will be determined though an autopsy.

Norwich is in Chenango County, 47 miles southeast of Syracuse.
