SANDY HOOK - A fisherman found a partially decomposed body at Dam No. 3 on the Potomac River in Washington County near Harpers Ferry, W.Va., at 9:30 a.m. Friday, Maryland State Police said.
Police said the body, which could not be positively identified, may be that of a 60-year-old local woman reported missing Jan. 1. The woman's vehicle was found about four miles upstream from where the body was recovered.
Police refused to release the name of the missing woman.
Alleine Grace Mills, 60, of 9704 Clover Heights Road, was reported missing Jan. 1 after family members said she left the house and did not return, police said at the time. The silver and gray 1986 Chevrolet Caprice she drove was found abandoned off Limekiln Road along the C&O Canal tow path. At the time, a state police bloodhound searched the area without success.
