MELBOURNE, AR - State police say a body found in Izard County yesterday is likely that of missing college student Rebekah Gould.

The 22-year-old was last seen September 20 and was reported missing the next day.

State police spokesman Bill Sadler says searchers found the body at the bottom of a 35-foot embankment off State Highway 9, about 4.5 miles south of Melbourne.

He says the body was taken to the state crime laboratory in Little Rock.

Gould was in Melbourne after she and her sister Danielle visited a friend in Guion.  Gould had been a student at Ozarka College in Melbourne, but recently transferred to a junior college in Bentonville.

Her purse containing her keys and money was found in her car at her friend's house.
