Authorities believe a body found in a canal near the Delaware River is the woman who went missing in the early hours of Saturday, January 26, 2013, in Lambertville, N.J.

The body was found in the Delaware and Raritan Canal at about 5 p.m., Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony Kearns said. The body matches the description of Sarah Majoras, 39.

She left John and Peter's Bar in New Hope, Pa., and was on her way home in Lambertville around 2 a.m. Saturday, authorties said. 

The Hunterdon County Prosecutor's Office released security camera images that show that she crossed the river over the bridge from New Hope into Lambertville. Then she turned north on Lambert Lane and vanished.

State Police divers began searching the canal in Lambertville on Monday, officials said.
