The Federal Bureau of Investigation released little information Wednesday about its continuing investigation into the death of a 21-year-old woman whose body was found near Lame Deer on Monday.

Hanna Harris, of Lame Deer, went missing on July 3. Her body was found west of Lame Deer and south of Highway 212 late Monday night.

Friends, family and law enforcement officials searched for her over the weekend before the body was found on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation.

Debra Bertram, FBI Salt Lake City division spokeswoman, said the investigation is ongoing and declined to discuss the case.

She did say that nobody had been arrested as of Wednesday afternoon in connection with Harris' death.

Rosebud County officials conducted an autopsy but have not yet released her cause of death.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs is assisting in the investigation.
