Authorities have identified a body found in a Bloomington field as a 57-year-old woman who's been missing since last month.

McLean County Coroner Beth Kimmerling said Wednesday that Jean L. Kelly of Minier was identified through dental records.

Kelly had been missing since early September.

Her remains were found Monday afternoon in some brush near a harvested cornfield. Kimmerling says the body had been in the field for quite some time.

She says an autopsy found no evidence of trauma, and nothing found in the area explained what may have led to Kelly's death.

A preliminary cause of death is pending toxicology and other tests.
