OBX 911 call: Body found in trash bag with clothing

MANTEO, N.C. - A body is found near the area where a missing mother was last seen.  Investigators have now released the 911 call from the person who discovered the corpse.

Dare County Sheriff Doug Doughtie said Sunday an autopsy could be done as early as Monday, a step he says is needed to identify the body found about 20 to 30 miles from where 33-year-old Lynn Jackenheimer, of Ashland, Ohio, disappeared.

Sheriff's investigators were unable to tell if the body is a woman or a man.  The person who found the body told 911 dispatchers the body was found in a trash bag with a Hooters shirt.

Jackenheimer was reported missing when she didn't come home from a vacation on the Outer Banks with her two children and her on-and-off boyfriend, Nate Summerfield.

Police say Summerfield dropped the children off in Ashland and drove away.
