LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Lawrence police say they have located a 19-year-old woman whose disappearance led to the discovery of a 52-year-old man's body at the Lawrence home they shared.

Sarah Brooke Gonzales McLinn's family reported her missing earlier this month. When police went to the home where McLinn had been living they found the body of Harold M. Sasko. McLinn and Sasko's vehicle were missing.

Lawrence police Sgt. Trent McKinley said in a release late Sunday that a Florida law enforcement agency contacted Lawrence police Saturday saying they believe they had found McLinn.

McKinley says Lawrence detectives flew to Florida on Sunday and confirmed that McLinn had been located. He says McLinn appears uninjured and Sasko's vehicle has also been located. The investigation into Sasko's death remains ongoing.
