The body of missing Bucks County resident Casey Johnston was reportedly found Sunday afternoon in Philadelphia -- and authorities believe a car crash may have been the cause of her death.

A preliminary investigation shows the 26-year-old -- missing since July 10 -- was driving on Woodhaven Road, near where improperly negotiated a curve, went down to the culvert, airborne, up and over a guardrail and crashed into a tree 30 feet into the air, CBS3 reports.

She is believed to have been ejected through the sun roof, and flooding from a July 12 storm may have moved her body to a nearby creek, authorities told the outlet.

Johnston's boyfriend Mike Bastik penned a heartbreaking tribute to her on Facebook Sunday, hours after her body was found.
