LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Scott County Sheriff's Department is investigating after a woman's body was found on New Year's Day.

A passing driver found the woman's body about 10 a.m. along Thomastown Road near Austin.

A family spokesperson said the woman was 23-year-old Morgan Coomer and that she lived near the area where she was found. Police have not said how Coomer died.

Coomer's family is seeking information from Coomer's boyfriend and another man she texted on New Year's Eve. The pair are believed to be the last two people to see her alive, the spokesperson said.

The sheriff's department had not returned a call for information early Tuesday afternoon.

Coomer's family has set up a GoFundMe page for support. Click here to donate.
