W.Va. State Police say a body found along the riverbank in Point Pleasant is that of a missing Gallipolis, Ohio, woman.

Trooper S.C. Allen says the body of Lisa Miller, 43, was found about 5:30 Wednesday night.

Family members reported Miller missing last Wednesday.

Gallipolis Police said Miller had been living along the riverbank near Riverview Drive in Gallipolis. This was also the area she was last seen.

Troopers say dental records and tattoos were used to identify Miller.

Both the Gallipolis Police Department and West Virginia State Police have open investigations into the case. They are waiting on results of the autopsy, but say no other action is expected at this time.
