UPDATE: Body found in the woods of Medford, Long Island has been identified as Sarah Goode, the 21-year-old mother who has been missing since last Friday.


A woman's body has been found in Medford, Long Island and now authorities are working to determine if it is that of Sarah Goode, a missing 21 year old mother.

The body was discovered last night in a "thickly wooded" area behind a residential neighborhood, about a mile away from where Goode's car was found.

Goode has a 4 year old daughter and hasn't been seen since early Saturday morning.  Authorities were notified after she didn't return home and they have labeled her disappearance as suspicious.

Joseph Miller told Newsday his father was part of the search team that found the body.

"Yesterday I was searching and today I got here right after they discovered the body," he said.

Investigators are looking at the possibility that Goode was attacked near her car and then left in the woods.  A police source said they're also investigating whether a person that knew Goode assaulted her in a "domestic type" incident.

A medical examiner will work to identify the body.
