INDIANAPOLIS -- A body found by a group cleaning up their neighborhood on Indianapolis' northeast side over the weekend has been identified as an Indy woman reported missing back in December. 

The Marion County Coroner identified the body as Jaimie Beasley, 32, during an autopsy Monday morning. 

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers were called to the scene around 11 a.m. 

Witnesses on the scene say a group was doing a neighborhood cleanup when one of the volunteers discovered what appeared to be a human body partially covered near the creek. 

Beasley was seen on December 15, 2017. She has a 9-year-old daughter. 

Family members said  back in January that they feared something bad had happened to her when she didn't return home. 

Beasley's death remains under investigation by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
