BAR HARBOR – A body found near the intersection of Route 3 (Eden Street) and West Street Saturday has been identified as missing Bar Harbor woman Mikaela Conley.
Conley’s body was found around noon Saturday by a State Police dog, Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said.
Conley, who was 19, had been reported missing by her family. She was reportedly last seen near Conners Emerson School Friday. An extensive search involving multiple law enforcement agencies took place Saturday.
The intersection of Route 3 and West Street was closed to traffic midday Saturday. The Bar Harbor Police and Fire departments, Maine Warden Service and Maine Marine Patrol assisted State Police detectives throughout the day.
An autopsy began Sunday at the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Augusta and “additional work remains,” according to McCausland.
A team of State Police detectives was expected to return to Bar Harbor to continue the investigation on Monday.
Officials are asking anyone who might have information about the case to call State Police in Bangor at 973-3700.
