The body of a Wisconsin woman missing for nearly two weeks has been recovered and several suspects have been arrested in connection with her death, according to authorities.
Emily Rogers was last seen alive on April 26, near her home in Milwaukee around 4:30 pm, according to a news release issued by the Milwaukee Police Department on Thursday. She was wearing a T-shirt, skinny jeans and black-and-gold Timberland boots at the time.
A friend reported her missing over the weekend after she discovered Rogers’ phone tossed in a bush.
On Tuesday, police declared the 23-year-old mother a “critical missing person,” adding that “there is reasonable suspicion to believe her disappearance is not voluntary and/or she is the victim of foul play.”
Reports on social media also suggested that Rogers’ 1-year-old daughter was missing, but police have since said the girl has been located and is safe, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
Rogers body was found on Thursday in the city of St. Francis, according to authorities. Few other details have been provided.
“The Milwaukee Police Department (MPD) is thankful for all the community members that volunteered to search for Emily Rogers along with MPD. Unfortunately, Emily Rogers was found deceased this afternoon in St. Francis,” police said.
“This remains an open and ongoing investigation. Multiple suspects are in custody related to this investigation,” the news release continued. “The Milwaukee Police Department sends our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Emily Rogers who are impacted by this tragedy.”
An autopsy has been scheduled for Friday.
