TERRE HAUTE, Ind. A body found with a man's remains in rural western Indiana has been identified as that of a 58-year-old missing Terre Haute woman.

Indiana State Police say they and the Vigo County coroner have positively identified the woman, Cynthia Davis, through DNA testing at the Indiana State Police Laboratory.

Coroner Susan Amos previously had listed Davis' cause of death as strangulation.

Her family reported her missing on Oct. 16, three days before her body and that of 76-year-old Nevelland Thompson Jr. of Terre Haute were found under a small bridge on a driveway leading to an abandoned home in northwestern Vigo County.

Thompson had last been seen on Oct. 10. His cause of death is pending.

Police say they believe Thompson and Davis were in a relationship.
