LEAKE CO., Miss. (WLBT) - Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham Stewart says the body of a missing person found in Leake County may be a missing woman from Jackson.

A Silver Alert was issued for 19-year-old Priddy Jackson last week due to her disappearance.

Coroner Stewart says the official identity of the victim will have to be confirmed through medical records or DNA, which may take some time.

Leake County investigators say they made one arrest, and the suspect is linked to a missing person case from May.
