WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The state medical examiner’s office has identified the body of a Charlotte woman who was last seen at her home in 1975.

The Winston-Salem Journal reports that DNA and dental records confirmed that the body was that of Priscilla Ann Blevins. Two weeks ago, Cathy Blevins Howe of Clemmons learned that the body was her sister’s.

Blevins was last seen by her roommate at their home on July 7, 1975. Ten years later, a woman’s body was found off Interstate 40 in Haywood County and taken to the medical examiner’s office in Chapel Hill.

In 2009, Howe provided her DNA to investigators, which combined with dental records confirmed that it was Blevins whose body was found in Haywood County.

Howe said she plans a memorial for her sister.
