(KWWL) -

Investigators say a body found may be that of a missing Plainfield woman who disappeared in July. 

The Bremer County Sheriff's Office received a report of human remains found near a home at 1477 120th Street, north of Horton. A local farmer found the body on Wednesday around 1:30 p.m. while harvesting corn.

The investigation suggests the remains are those of Cloris Mehmen, who went missing on July 5th. 

The body was located half a mile from Mehmen's home where she was last seen.

An autopsy has been scheduled at the state Medical Examiner's Office in Ankeny to determine the cause of death. 

No foul play is suspected. The family has been notified.
