A body discovered by a boater near Kent Island last week has been identified as a 17-year-old Severna Park High School student, Maryland Transportation Authority Police said.

Emily Rose LeClare had been missing since Dec. 18, when her vehicle was found abandoned on the Bay Bridge. The police "don't know how she got in the water," said Cpl. Jonathan Green, a spokesman for the Maryland Transportation Authority Police.

The boater who found the body first contacted the Maryland Natural Resources Police, who then contacted the MdTA police, Green said. A medical examiner performed an autopsy and identified the girl Monday morning.
