BEEMER, Neb. (AP) -- The body of a 56-year-old woman has been found in a car believed to have crashed about two weeks ago in northeast Nebraska.

The victim has been identified as Donna Baumert, of West Point.

Cuming County Sheriff Brad Boyum says the wrecked car and Baumert's body were found by utility workers on Wednesday afternoon about a mile south of Beemer. Boyum says it appears her car ran through a dead end and went about a half-mile through a field before coming to rest in a creek bed.

The sheriff says the accident appears to have occurred about two weeks ago but was just discovered Wednesday.
