WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The remains of a woman reported missing in March, Fae Morgana Barbone, have been found off the Taconic Crest Trail in New York State.
Barbone, 40, of Plymouth County, was reported missing just days before her car was found on March 19 at the Mount Berlin trailhead; it had been there for at least a week. Numerous searches were made on the Williamstown and New York sides of the trail by law enforcement — Williamstown's K-9 and drone were utilized — and volunteers including Berkshire Mountain Search & Rescue 
The Williamstown Police Department posted the news shortly after 1 p.m. on Tuesday on the department's Facebook page. 
"Williamstown Police are saddened to report being notified by New York State Police that a body was found just off the Taconic Crest Trail in New York State, not far from the Massachusetts border. It's been confirmed that the remains are those of Fae Morgana Barbone, the missing person last seen in the area in early March, which prompted extensive searches over several days by multiple agencies," the post stated. 
The case is now under the jurisdiction of the New York State Police in Brunswick and the Abington Police Department, which first took the missing persons report. 
According to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, Barbone's car, a black 2019 Ford Festiva coupe with license plate 259TB, was reported on a street in Augusta, Maine, on March 7. She was caught on security camera footage at an ATM on March 6. There were also reports of her being sighted in other places but her car seems to have been in Williamstown since about March 10.
