Human remains have been found in a car in the Connecticut River that may belong to a New Hampshire woman who disappeared in 1978.
The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says the vehicle was recently found south of a covered bridge that connects Lancaster, New Hampshire, with Lunenburg, Vermont.
A Fish and Game dive team is actively searching the area around the vehicle. A preliminary investigation has revealed that the vehicle may belong to Alberta Leeman, of Gorham, New Hampshire, who disappeared in 1978.
Her disappearance is not considered suspicious. Vermont State Police and other agencies are working on the case.
