    Maine authorities say they continue to investigate the death of a woman whose body was found in the woods more than a decade ago.

    The Press Herald reports Maine State Police considers the death of Amy Drake to be "open and active'' 12 years after her death. State police posted the message Saturday on their Facebook page on the 12th anniversary of her death.

    The Skowhegan woman was reported missing Sept. 20, 2006, by her mother.

    The then 18-year-old was the mother of a 2-year-old child and was found two months after she went missing in the woods by a pair of deer hunters in Norridgewock.

    [NATL] New Study Says Beards are 'Dirtier' Than Dogs

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.

    State police have interviewed a suspect in the past but stopped short of naming any persons of interests in the case.

    Officials have not said how Drake died.
