A Forest Park woman with autism who was reported missing last month was identified as the body recently found in the Yellow River in Newton County.

Newton County Coroner Tommy Davis confirmed that Shanequa Quanee Sullivan, 23, was found by a fisherman late Saturday. Sheriff’s deputies returned Sunday and removed the body from the river.

Sullivan, who worked at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, was reported missing Feb. 4 by her family. She had worked at the airport for almost a year.

Her family said she usually rode the train from the airport to College Park or East Point, then transferred to the bus.

Davis said officials are working to determine a cause of death.
