The body of a missing 22-year-old Alabama woman has been found near railroad tracks in Bessemer.
Bessemer police Chief Mike Roper told via Al.com that the body of Crystal Vasquez was found Sunday afternoon by family members who were searching the area.
ABC 33/40 reported Vasquez had been reported missing in Birmingham and hadn’t been seen by family members for at least a week.
Vasquez was reported missing to Birmingham police on March 6. Roper says it’s unclear why the family was searching for Vazquez near the Bessemer train tracks.
He says her death is unclassified at this time and there were no obvious signs of foul play. An autopsy to determine Vazquez’s cause of death is set for Monday at the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office.
