Body found in Madison County identified as 26-year-old Amanda Bailey.

The body found in a Madison County farm Thursday was identified Friday as 26-year-old Amanda Bailey, according to the Madison County coroner.

Bailey went missing Monday and the search for her was called off Thursday, when a body believed to be hers was found near Lake Reba in Madison County, according to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office. She was found around two miles from where crews were searching for her, according to WKYT.

Madison County Coroner Jimmy Cornelison identified the body to be Bailey’s through fingerprints, he said.

The cause for Bailey’s death has not been determined. Cornelison said Bailey was out in the cold for a long time, he added.

Cornelison hopes for the autopsy to be completed by Saturday.

WLEX reported that the mother of one had met an ex-boyfriend in the area and the man said she walked off. She was missing since late Monday.
