A sheriff says a body found in Greenbrier County over the weekend has been identified as a woman who had been missing following last month's devastating floods.

Greenbrier County Sheriff Jan Cahill said Wednesday that one of two bodies found Saturday was positively identified as 33-year-old Nataysha Hughes of White Sulphur Springs.

Cahill says her body was found along property owned by The Greenbrier resort about a mile from her home.

The sheriff says the name of the other victim found Saturday hasn't been confirmed by the state medical examiner's office.

Greenbrier County was the hardest-hit from the June 23 floods. Authorities have said 14 people died and one person is missing and presumed dead. Statewide, 23 people were killed.
