The coroner has confirmed a body recovered in the Kern River on Dec. 2 is that of a Ventura woman who has been missing since April.
Lisa Gail Harvey, 51, died from multiple injuries, according to the coroner.
Deputies say the body was found in a missing car that belonged to Harvey, who was reported missing on April 30.
California Highway Patrol says they are not sure how the car ended up in the river.
A hiker spotted the car and other items in the river a few days before it was recovered.
The manner of death was ruled an accident by officials.
