SACRAMENTO - Authorities say a body found along the American River in Sacramento has been identified as a missing University of California, Davis student.
Teams have been searching for 19-year-old Linnea Lomax since shortly after she walked away from an outpatient mental health facility in Sacramento on June 26.
Sacramento County Coroner Greg Wyatt said Friday night that remains found earlier in the day along the American River are those of Lomax.
The Sacramento Bee reported that a search teams located the remains in dense brush.
Wyatt said in a statement that the cause of death is under investigation but foul play doesn't appear to be a factor.
Lomax's family says she was getting treatment at the mental health facility after suffering a breakdown while studying for final exams.
