A woman's body was found in a rural area of Massachusetts and authorities are trying to determine whether it's the body of a woman who went missing from her sister's nearby home in May.

The Berkshire district attorney's office says loggers found the body in a heavily wooded area of Peru on Tuesday morning.

The body was handed over to the medical examiner for an autopsy to determine an identity and the circumstances surrounding her death.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that a 53-year-old woman went missing from her sister's home in the adjacent town of Hinsdale in May. Authorities said at the time they did not suspect foul play.
