A body found in Perry County this week is that of Erica Lynn Klinger, the 27-year-old Mechanicsburg woman who went missing nearly a month ago, the county coroner confirmed Friday.

Coroner Mike Shalonis said Klinger's body was positively identified through dental records.

An autopsy was performed at Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown earlier in the day, but the cause and manner of death are pending.

Klinger was last seen June 8 as she left her job at a gas station on the Carlisle Pike. Her body was found Wednesday night in a wooded area about 20 yards from Route 11/15 near Perdix.

Police have arrested two people who allegedly were seen driving Klinger's car after her disappearance.

Luis Lugo-Davila, 28, of Harrisburg, was arrested yesterday on charges of flight to avoid apprehension, theft and receiving stolen property. His bail at Dauphin County Prison is set at $500,000 cash.

His girlfriend, 32-year-old Maria Lara, also of Harrisburg, was arrested June 17 for theft and hindering apprehension. She is on the prison on $250,000 cash bail.
