A tragic end to the case of a missing St. Johnsville woman: a private citizen found the body of 21-year-old Michaela MacVilla on his property in Oppenheim in Fulton county Tuesday afternoon, in the area of Kringsbush Road. 

New York State Police held a news conference Wednesday afternoon, releasing details regarding the discovery of MacVilla's body.  Police didn't comment on the manner of death or cause of death. They're awaiting results of an autopsy, performed by Dr. Michael Sikirica, at Albany Medical Center. 

MacVilla was last seen leaving the Stewart's Shop in the village of St. Johnsville in the early morning hours of September 25, after her 4 p.m. to midnight shift. Police followed up on dozens of leads and conducted numerous interviews in connection with her disappearance.

State police are asking that if anyone has information they believe might be relative to the case, no matter how insignificant they think it might be, call them at 518-630-1700. 

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help Michaela MacVilla's family. To make a donation, click here.
