Anchorage police say a dive team has found a body believed to be that of an Alaska coffee shop worker who vanished Feb. 1.

Police Chief Mark Mew said Monday evening that officers believe divers recovered the body of 18-year-old Samantha Koenig from Matanuska Lake north of Anchorage.

Mew said authorities believe the killer acted alone and added, "We're confident we have that person in custody." Although he mentioned no names, the only person who has been linked to the case is 34-year-old Israel Keyes, who was arrested last month on unrelated counts.

Surveillance video from the night Koenig was last seen showed her being led away from her coffee stand. Police say they believe the Anchorage woman died within hours of her abduction.
