JACKSON, MO (KFVS) -

Ten weeks after Heartland mom Jacque Waller disappeared, Jackson authorities wait to find out more about a woman's body found north of St. Louis.

Police Chief James Humphreys says they are waiting to see if authorities can identify the woman.

The Missouri Water Patrol found her body Sunday in the Mississippi River, near the Lock and Dam at Winfield.

Humphreys says they feel they should check out every possible lead and this discovery happened close enough to the Heartland to warrant their attention.

In the meantime, Humphreys says new searches in Cape Girardeau County are scheduled for next week.

Volunteers will meet Saturday, August 13 at Circle S Saddle in Gordonville at 8 a.m.

Organizers for the search on Saturday are asking for donations of water and lunch for searchers. If you're interested in helping, you can contact Bob Sherrill at 573-339-5989 or e-mail at gerber5150@yahoo.com.

Waller went missing June 1 after meeting with her estranged husband in Jackson.

Clay Waller, a person of interest in the case, remains in jail on unrelated charges of theft and harassment.
