    A vigil is planned for a New Hampshire woman who was reported missing and later found dead in the Lamprey River.

    The body of 25-year-old Nicole Davis was pulled from the river in Epping on Tuesday afternoon. She was last seen Sunday. Police said she had been camping with friends in Raymond, was drinking and went for a walk. They believe she drowned; her death has been ruled accidental.

    Raymond Police Chief Michael Labell said volunteers searching for Davis found her body Tuesday afternoon, and authorities were able to confirm her identity.

    A vigil was planned for Wednesday night on the Raymond Town Common.

    Davis was last seen around 11 p.m. Saturday after she walked away from the Pine Acres Campground on Freetown Road.

    "At some point, she went for a walk, and then it was reported, when she didn't return, to us, and that's when we started to search," Labell said.

    "She's very lovable. She's the best sister you could ask for," said Davis' brother Patrick Feddersen. "I gave her a nice big hug on Easter and said, 'I'll talk to you soon,' and 'We will make some plans for Mother's Day.'"

    An autopsy was planned Wednesday.
