Sheriff Harvey Gjesdal told KOMO Radio in Seattle investigators are hoping tips will break the case.

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.

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.
