Police in Vermont believe they’ve found the body of a missing Massachusetts woman — and authorities are now looking for her ex-boyfriend, according to state police.
Authorities had been searching for Mary Anderson, 23, of the town of Harvard, who went missing over the weekend.
They found her truck Tuesday up in Brattleboro, Vermont, according to a new release from the staties — and a dead body they believe to be hers inside.
Police now are looking to locate and speak with Matthew Davis, 34, of Fitchburg, “who may have information relevant to this ongoing investigation,” according to the staties, who said that Davis is Anderson’s former boyfriend and that he’s had previous run-ins with the law.
Police said he has ties to the Pittsfield area, and is a white man about 5 feet 6 inches tall with brown hair and blue eyes.
Massachusetts State Police are assisting Vermont State Police in the investigation into Anderson’s disappearance and death, and police continue to investigate “the circumstances of her disappearance.”

Anyone with information on Davis’s whereabouts, or who may have seen Davis or Anderson, either together or separately, in the last few days, is asked to call Vermont State Police in Westminster at 802-722-4600 or simply call 911.
No further info was immediately available.
Anderson’s mother told multiple TV outlets that Anderson and Davis split up last year after dating for three years.
