Officials have not yet released the identity of a partially decomposed white woman found near the end of Thomas Humphrey Road in Jacksonville.

Onslow County Sheriff’s Office says they were called to the body around 3:20 p.m. in an overgrown area off Thomas Humphrey Road by teenagers who found the body. Investigators with the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office searched the overgrown area for forensic evidence and clues where the body was recovered. Little details were revealed into the cause of death or the circumstances on how the woman ended up on Thomas Humphrey Road.

An autopsy on the body was scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 2 and nearly a week later the identity of the woman remains unknown. Friends and family of a missing Jacksonville woman since Dec. 4 believes the body is 22-year-old Shelby Brown.

The lack of information provided by the Onslow County Sheriff’s Department since the body was found aids in the family hopes to find Brown alive.

News In Onslow learned earlier this week that Brown’s mother Wendy Millis was told by the Onslow County Sheriff’s Department to bring in Brown’s hairbrush and toothbrush to positively identify her. It is unknown if the lack of information is related to investigators identifying the found body found as 22-year-old Shelby Brown or not.

The family and friends of Brown are still asking for the public’s help to find Brown until more information by the Onslow County Sheriff’s Department is released.

Serina Norris-Davis, the auntie of Brown said in a Facebook post, “you can do the right thing and let her family and friends that love and care for her know what has happened to her….You can be anonymous,” while Brown’s mother says she still has no information on her daughter.

Officials haven’t released any new information regarding the partially decomposed body found by the teenagers.

Police are investigating this case as a homicide investigation.
