ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Anchorage police say a dive team has found a body believed to be that of an Alaska coffee shop worker who vanished Feb. 1.

Police Chief Mark Mew said Monday evening that officers believe divers recovered the body of 18-year-old Samantha Koenig from Matanuska Lake north of Anchorage.

Surveillance video on the night Koenig was last seen showed her being led away from her coffee stand. Police say they believe the Anchorage woman died within hours of her abduction.
