ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Investigators say foul play is not suspected in the death of a University of Georgia student whose body was found in a creek.

Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Sherry Lang told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution 22-year-old Rebecca Elaine Greene's manner of death is not a homicide and an autopsy on the woman didn't show any signs of foul play.

An Athens-Clarke County police officer found Greene's body in an area of west Athens where the woman's cellphone signal was last detected.

Lang says GBI agents recovered Greene's phone and her pink bicycle on the scene.

Police have said Greene was last heard from around 5:30 p.m. Monday.

Greene's body was sent to the GBI's crime lab in Decatur and investigators say the woman's cause of death is unclear.
