Body found in Tennessee park identified as missing Oklahoma woman

Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ A body found in a Tennessee state park was identified Thursday as a missing Oklahoma woman.

29-year-old Amanda Ann Phillips Bateman of Chandler disappeared early Monday while driving from Oklahoma to Tennessee to visit her family.

The family's pastor, Dick Wells, says the body found Wednesday in Natchez Trace State Park is that of Bateman.

Bateman used her cell phone to call her family at about 12:30 Monday morning to say she had picked up a hitchhiker in Memphis. She called her family again about 2 a-m but wasn't heard from after that.

FBI Agent Jon Stephens says investigators want to question transient Bobby Joe McCauley about the case. McCauley used Bateman's cell phone to call a relative in Georgia.

Bateman's car was found near Dallas.
