GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. -

The Greenville County Coroner's Office has identified the body found just off Whispering Hollow Road in Greenville Co. Wednesday as missing woman Misty Michelle Johnson.

The remote area is close to Interstate-85 in Greenville County.

The 39-year-old Greenville woman had been missing since Sept. 12. She was last seen at Junior’s Sports Bar near Haywood Mall, five miles away from where her body was found.

Johnson's car was found within Greenville city limits a few days after she was reported missing. Greenville Police will not release exactly where her car was found.

The coroner's office said Johnson's body was so badly decomposed, they couldn't tell at first whether it was a man’s or a woman's body.

The only way they were able to positively identify her Friday was by comparing her dental records. Johnson had extensive dental work done and her teeth were found intact.

The coroner's office said it's likely she's been dead for at least several weeks.

Greenville Police spokesperson Johnathan Bragg said investigators’ next steps depend on what the coroner's office determines as Johnson’s cause of death -- whether she died of natural causes or if there are indications of foul play like broken bones.

A forensic anthropologist was called in to examine the body on Thursday. The results of her findings won't be ready for several days.

If you may have any information on Misty Johnson's death, call Greenville Police at (864) 271-4273.
