Police have confirmed that a body found in a Staten Island park Thursday night is that of a woman who has been missing for several weeks.

The body of Megan Marotte, 20, was found Thursday night in Willowbrook Park.

Two people reported an odd smell as they were walking, and responding officers found the body.

"I had to be sitting within feet, maybe a couple of feet, because the odor was so strong. And at that point, I picked up my cell phone, I called 911," said one witness.

Marotte disappeared on the morning of August 4.

There is no word yet on a cause of death.
