WATERVILLE, Wash. - The Douglas County sheriff says there are no suspects in the slaying of a young woman whose body was found along the Columbia River at Crescent Bar.
     
Sheriff Harvey Gjesdal told KOMO Radio in Seattle investigators are hoping tips will break the case.
     
The body has not been positively identified, but investigators are working on the assumption it's 17-year-old Mackenzie Cowell.
     
The Wenatchee High School student was last seen leaving a beauty school class Tuesday in Wenatchee. Her car was found that night near Mission Ridge, about 40 miles from her home in Orondo.
     
The body was found Saturday on the river bank with her feet in the water.

Sheriff: Authorities believe body is missing teen


(February 14, 2010)

Authorities say they believe a body found along the Columbia River is that of a 17-year-old Washington girl missing since Tuesday.
      
Douglas County Sheriff Harvey Gjesdal said Sunday that authorities are working under the assumption that the body discovered in Crescent Bar Saturday is that of Mackenzie Cowell.
      
Gjesdal tells The Wenatchee World he's basing his assumption on the victim's appearance, as well as statements made by a detective who has been working the case and has seen the body.
      
Gjesdal wouldn't comment on the cause of death, but he called the case a homicide. An autopsy is planned for Tuesday.
      
Cowell was last seen leaving a beauty school class in Wenatchee last Tuesday. Her locked car was found that night near Mission Ridge, about 40 miles from her home in Orondo.
