JEFFERSON COUNTY — Through DNA technology, a Jefferson County coroner has identified a Birmingham woman who was found in a Jefferson County lake in April.

Hornsby was last seen with her family, visiting relatives in the Smithfield area on Feb. 9.

A police report was filed by family members and numerous searches were made, as well as appeals on social media, in an effort to find her.

A fisherman pulled her body from the lake two months later in April, but it wasn’t until the coroner conducted DNA testing last week that Hornsby’s identity was confirmed.
