The body recovered along with three cars from the Cooper River in Pennsauken last week has been identified by her daughter as Bernadine Gunner, who went missing in July 2010.

In a Facebook post shared Saturday, May 18, Julia Young says United Search Corps was behind the recovery operation in Pennsauken on Thursday, May 16, in which dive teams pulled three vehicles, along with Gunner's body, from the river in Pennsauken.

At the time, officials said the FBI was assisting and that DNA testing would be required to identify the body.

An archived post from the Camden County Prosecutor's Office said Gunner had last been seen on July 11, 2010, in a 2006 Hyundai Elantra.

Footage obtained by Daily Voice showed a newer-model Audi SUV being towed from the scene.

A spokesperson for the Camden County Prosecutor's Office said the office could not identify the body pending results of DNA testing.
