WEST PITTSTON, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) - State police are investigating a missing woman's death after her body was discovered Saturday afternoon in Luzerne County.

Pennsylvania State Police are taking on this investigation after a body was found today in Wyoming.

The West Wyoming Borough Police Department and West Pittston Police Department released Facebook posts early Saturday, asking everyone to keep an eye out for 41-year-old Jennifer Herron.

The search came to an end at Midway Shopping Center, the place she was last seen Thursday.

They found her body in a wooded area near the former BonTon. They taped off the area around 2 p.m. Saturday as they collected evidence. Several people crowded around the scene, including Herron's family.

State Police confirmed the body is that of Jennifer Herron.

People took to social media, posting comments saying "prayers for the family," "gone too soon, rest in peace," and another person saying, "I feel so bad for her husband and children."

Police say there is no indication of foul play, but the cause of death is still pending an autopsy.
