MILWAUKEE (AP) — A body found in Jefferson County earlier this month has been identified as that of a woman who went missing from Milwaukee in 2013.

Surveillance cameras recorded 27-year-old Kelly Dwyer going into her boyfriend's lakefront apartment in Milwaukee, where she had been living, in October 2013. But, she was never seen leaving.

The boyfriend Kris Zocco has been considered a person of interest in her disappearance but was never charged for any crime related to that. Since then, he's been convicted of child porn and drug charges.

Skeletal remains were found in Jefferson County May 1 and police say the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner notified them Thursday that they identified Dwyer.

Milwaukee police and authorities in Jefferson County are investigating the circumstances and cause of her death.
