State Police say the St. Johnsville woman who's been missing since last week has been found dead.

Police say the body of 21-year old Michaela MacVilla was found by a property owner in the Fulton County town of Oppenheim.

MacVilla was last seen walking home from her job at Stewart's in St Johnsville on September 25th.

The area where her body was found is just a few miles from where she worked.

Troopers searched for clues Wednesday along a rural road on the Montgomery and Fulton county line.

Police say an autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death.
