Federal investigators are working with local police to determine whether a woman seen in a surveillance photo in Rhode Island is the same woman who was reported missing from Ohio seven years ago.

The photo was posted to the Rhode Island Most Wanted website, which is maintained by Rhode Island State Police.

The woman in the photo allegedly stole wallets and purses from gyms in Warwick and used the stolen identities and checks to withdraw money from area banks.

WPRO-AM reports that authorities say the photo resembles Ashley Summers, who was 14 years old when she disappeared in 2007 from Cleveland.

The FBI is investigating with the help of Warwick police.

The resemblance was first reported by Cleveland media.
