Yonkers, (PIX11)– It appears the body of a missing minister has been found in Yonkers.

Back in July, Ethel Monroe was dressed in her church clothes when she wandered from her home.

Security video that day showed her confused and disoriented.

Then, on Wednesday a man walking in some woods found what appeared to be Monroe’s purse and shoes.

Police say they have now located a body matching her description, although no positive identification had yet to be made.

The 65-year-old lived about six miles away from where it was found.

According to Westchester County Public Safety Commissioner George Longworth the remains were submerged under water for a significant amount of time.
