A body found in southeastern New Mexico has been identified as that of a missing Texas woman.

Police say the body of Emily Rebecca Lambert of Dallas was found near the Eddy County village of Loving.

Lambert was reported missing from Carlsbad over the weekend.

Deputies and police haven't given many details about the discovery, but the Carlsbad Current Argus reports the body was found near the same spot where the body of another woman, Anna Villegas, was found in November.

Villegas's husband and a friend face charges in her death.
