CARLETON, Mich — A body found Monday in a drainage ditch in Ash Township in Monroe County has been identified as a Flint, Mich., woman who has been missing for nearly two weeks, Michigan State Police from Flint confirmed Tuesday.

Police said Tanisha L. Colton, 27, was last seen the afternoon of March 13 after leaving her job in Flint.

Investigators learned that the victim’s vehicle had last been seen in the Toledo area early in the morning of March 14.

The case was under investigation, but is being treated as a homicide, First Lt. Matt Bolger said, adding that a “person of interest” was in custody, but nobody had been charged with Ms. Colton’s death.
