Jacqueline Watts's vehicle was found in the 2300 block of Riverside Drive in Columbus.

Officers searching the surrounding area recovered Watts' body next to the Flatrock River on Saturday morning, less than half a mile from her auto.

The New York Daily News reported that the passenger side door of the auto was open, and a cellphone and purse were found inside.

Jacqueline Watts, 33, was reported missing Friday afternoon. The auto turned out to be Watts' missing vehicle. On Saturday, the law enforcement officers found Watts's vehicle in Columbus. According to CBS News, the police used a K-9 unit to assist them in the search for Watts.

Perhaps not coincidentally, the discovery of Watts's body Saturday morning was along a stretch less than two hours drove from where Carroll County teens, Abigail Williams and Liberty German were found dead last month.

Jackie Kleine Watts never made it home to meet her husband for their trip.

Lt. Matt Harris with Columbus police says there has been a lot of misinformation spread on social media.

Police are not classifying the death a homicide, and Harris declined to comment on the possible cause of death.

For the time being, the investigators are not sure about how Watts died and are waiting for the coroner's report which is due on Monday.
