On Sunday, officials found her body in a wooded area several blocks away from the crash site.

Officials saw a neighbor pointing toward the woods, where he had located the body.

Investigators found her body Sunday morning.

Gray declined to say what kind of alcohol was in the auto - it's still unclear whether alcohol played a role in the crash - but he said Jenkins faced at least a hit-and-run charge, so he went looking for her.

Authorities say Jenkins failed to yield as she attempted to make a left turn and pulled out in front of another vehicle.

Alcohol was found in the vehicle driven by a teen who was involved in a crash in North Raleigh on Friday and was later found dead in a wooded area, according to a state Highway Patrol trooper.

Kayla Ray, 19, said she met Jenkins about five years ago after a high school football game.
