Police say the body of a missing Sanford woman was located about a half mile from the convenience store where she was last seen.

Warden Sergent Tim Sphar found the body of 40-year-old Kerry Rear on Wednesday along Hancock Way, off Route 109. The wooded area is about a half mile from the Lil' Mart store where Rear was spotted on the night of January 22nd. Surveillance cameras caught video of Rear walking into the store in stocking feet and looking disoriented.

The State Medical Examiner's Office will conduct an autopsy to confirm her identity and to determine cause of death. State Police investigators are working with the Maine Warden Service and Sanford Police to try and piece together what happened leading up to Rear's death.
