— Wilson police have identified the body found near Interstate 95 Thursday morning as 21-year-old Jocelyn Hernandez.

Officers were dispatched to an accident scene, where they found Hernandez on the northbound side of I-95 at about 9:50 a.m.

The area was near the place Hernandez disappeared Wednesday following a crash.

"The identification was made by fingerprint comparison. The thoughts and prayers of the Wilson Police Department are with Ms. Hernandez’s family in this difficult time," a police spokesperson said in a release.

I-95 was closed for several hours, but reopened just before 2 p.m.
