Human remains identified as woman missing since 1996

Posted: Updated:

FULTON, N.Y. (AP) -- Authorities say human remains found in a car pulled from a central New York river last week have been identified as those of a woman who disappeared nearly 20 years ago.

The Oswego Police Department says the remains were confirmed as being those of 30-year-old Carol Wood, who disappeared early on the morning of Aug. 6, 1996, after leaving a bar in the Lake Ontario city.

A state canal system crew mapping the Oswego River with sonar located her car last Thursday in Fulton, 10 miles south of Oswego. The remains found inside the vehicle were sent to the Onondaga County Medical Examiner's Office in Syracuse for positive identification.

Police say Wood left the bar alone.

A cause and manner of death hasn't been determined. Police say their investigation is continuing.
