SYRACUSE, N.Y. " Remains found near an Illinois highway have been identified as those of a former central New York woman who was last seen three years ago in a Las Vegas suburb.
A family friend says Martha and Robert Harris of Skaneateles (skan-ee-AT'-les) were notified last weekend by Illinois authorities that the legs found in May 2005 near Springfield were those of their 21-year-old daughter Lindsay.
The woman was last seen earlier that month in Henderson.
After her disappearance, Henderson police said Lindsay Harris was associated with a local escort service.
Authorities used DNA evidence to identify the remains, which were found near Interstate 55 in central Illinois.
Police in Nevada and Illinois still are investigating the case.
