CANTERBURY, N.H. (AP) -- New Hampshire authorities have found a body that they believe to be a woman who has been missing for four days, and her son has been arrested in Virginia on a charge of stealing her vehicle.

Attorney General Gordon MacDonald said the body was found in Canterbury on Monday afternoon and is believed to be that of 51-year-old Frances Nash, of Chichester. Her vehicle was previously reported missing and was found Wednesday in Canterbury.

An autopsy was scheduled.

Police issued an arrest warrant for Nash's son, 21-year-old Phillip Nash, in connection with the theft of her vehicle. WMUR-TV reports that state police in Virginia took him into custody outside of Emporia on Monday night. It wasn't immediately known if he had a lawyer.
