A Virginia family just learned that a body that was found is that of 18-year-old Jamisha Gilbert.

Yesterday, the medical examiner was waiting to identify that body.

Her body was found in a wooded area after her car was found abandoned and crashed.

Gilbert disappeared last Friday - and ever since then, family members and Lynchburg Police have searched for her.

The search took place west of Richmond. On Wednesday, search teams were told to stand down. Officials then announced that the body was found.
