Remains found in Illinois are of woman last seen in Henderson

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.
