Pennsylvania State Police Sunday said the body of a woman found Tuesday in Baltimore was that of a missing 37-year-old Pennsylvania woman.

"For all my friends and everyone whom has spent much time and effort sharing posts and spreading the word to help me find my missing wife....today it is with a weary heart I have to report to you that the search is over," Michael Reeves wrote. "My wife, Aleksandra "Ola" Reeves has been found. A few hours after her car was located in Baltimore MD, her body was recovered a short distance away. At this time I want to thank everyone for their support, encouragement, and understanding as I, family, and friends grieve and mourn the loss of the most amazing woman I have ever had the pleasure to love!"

The investigation is ongoing to determine a cause of death, police said, but spokesman T.J. Smith said there were no outward signs of trauma.

"It'll take the toxicology to determine exact cause and manner, but nothing indicates foul play at this time," Smith said.

Reeves had recently left her job as a business analyst due to stress, PennLive reported, and relatives told the news outlet that her departure was uncharacteristic. About an hour after leaving Elizabethtown, Reeves called relatives to say she may never see them again, according to PennLive.

Reeves' red Fiat was located June 6, a block and a half away from the location of her body, before her she was found, police said.

The Baltimore Police Department is handling the death investigation along with the Baltimore Medical Examiner's Office. The State Police in Harrisburg are assisting with the investigation.

"There are some mental health issues that our investigators were concerned about but right now we're waiting on the cause of death from the medical examiner's office," said Trooper Brent Miller, a spokesman for the Harrisburg State Police.
