SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- Authorities who had organized a weeklong manhunt for two suspected killers of a Washington state woman say a body found in rural Oregon is that of a teen who went missing last weekend.

State police spokesman Lt. Gregg Hastings said Wednesday that an autopsy has determined the body found late Tuesday is that of 19-year-old Cody Myers.

Earlier Wednesday, California police arrested two suspects who were wanted in last week's slaying in Everett, Wash., and Myers' disappearance.

The couple are believed to have taken Myers' car as they fled into Oregon.
