| No Comments

Istanbul police found the body of a New York City woman on Saturday who went missing while vacationing in Turkey, news sources reported.

Sarai Sierra, a 33-year-old vacationing alone in Istanbul, was discovered near the city walls, leading police to detain at least nine men for questioning in their investigation, according to ABC News.

Senior officers of the police force and the private NTV television said the victim may have been stabbed to death, though the autopsy has not confirmed that fact yet, news soures reported.

Sierra was last heard from Jan. 21, the day she was supposed to fly home, when she contacted her husband and two children, HĊĞrriyet Daily News said. Her disappearance caused a stir in the city of Istanbul because tourists disappearing is rare, and the police had set up a special unit to find her, ABC News said.
