Reports say a body found in Philadelphia could be that of a missing mother of five from the Bronx.
Vianela Tavera, 50, last spoke with her family on July 28.
She had gone to Philadelphia for a planned trip.
Her car was discovered in Virginia last week with 38-year-old Luis Negron-Martinez inside along with a handgun.
He was arrested on weapons and grand larceny charges.
Police believe Negron-Martinez knew Tavera.
