Wapato, WA -  Yakima Sheriff's Detectives say a body found near Wapato could be a woman who disappeared about three weeks ago.

They are calling the death suspicious.

The Yakima County Coroner will perform an autopsy tomorrow.

The body was found by farm workers near a pond on the 300 block of Lateral One Road.

YSO Detectives believe the body could be Laynah Myers who went missing about three weeks ago.  Only her burned out car was found near the Ahtanum Ridge at the time.

"There's similarities in the physical description so that's definitely a possibility," says Stu Graham, Chief of Detectives for the Yakima Sheriff's Office.

Yakima Police are also looking at a dental records or dna testing to find out if the body is Laynah Myers.
