FRISCO, North Carolina -- Authorities have confirmed that the body found in North Carolina is that of Lynn Jackenheimer, 33, the missing Ashland mom.

They said the body recovered in Frisco, North Carolina on July 14 "has been identified as that of Ms. Lynn Jackenheimer of Ashland, Ohio. The cause of death has not been determined and, again, as additional information becomes available, we will be sure to update everyone accordingly," said Captain W. Charles Nieman, of the Dare County Sheriffs Office.

Police are looking for her estranged boyfriend Nathan Summerfield.

Jackenheimer was reported missing when she didn't come home from a vacation on the Outer Banks with Summefield and their son, Leland, 3, and her 13-year-old daughter from a previous relationship, Ciara.

Police say Summerfield dropped the children off in Ashland and drove away. Police have been unable to locate him since then.

Earlier Monday, authorities released the 9-1-1 call when the body was found.

WKYC's Dave Summers is in North Carolina and spoke exclusively with the family.

On the 9-1-1 call, the person who found the body says that the body was wearing a Hooters shirt.

Jackenheimer's family confirmed to Summers that she collected Hooters T-shirts.

Police were not able to immediately identify the body that was found and wouldn't even say whether it was a man or a woman.
