RENO, Nev. — Police say the body of a woman found in a field in Reno is that of a college student missing since she was abducted nearly a month ago.
The body of 19-year-old Brianna Denison was discovered Friday in a grown-over lot by a business park on the city's south side. Police confirmed Saturday that the body was hers. more here

Authorities are moving the body of a woman found today in southeast Reno.
Spokesman Steve Frady earlier refused to comment on whether the investigation into the dead body is related to the abduction of Brianna Denison.
Frady said a tip was called in to the police department about 12:13 p.m. and officers responded.
About 44 police officers are working the case, Frady said. And a helicopter is circling the area, taking aerial photos, Frady said.
Frady is still asking people to stay out of the area as police officers work on their investigation.
Frady said no details were available about how the body was found or how long they suspect the body was there.
Meanwhile, Brianna's family is waiting for word
of the identity of the female body found.
While family members of Brianna Denison waited for news on whether a body found Friday was the missing 19-year-old, they pleaded with the public again to come forward with any information about who might have abducted her.

Police have not identified the body, but a passerby told News 4 that he asked a police officer if the body was that of missing teen Brianna Denison. He says the officer told him they are assuming it is her.
Reno Police Department spokesperson Steve Frady says they won't know the identity of the body until autopsy results are released. They believe that will be sometime tomorrow.
Everyone should keep in mind that until the body is positively identified speculation makes the situation worse. Our prayers again go out to Brianna, her family and her friends.
