KENT ISLAND, Md. (WMAR) - Sources tell ABC2 a female body found on Kent Island Saturday evening appears to be Robin Pope.

The body appears to be the same size and weight as Pope, according to sources.

Maryland State Police say the body was found near the Kent Island Estates on 500 Bay Drive.  The address near where the body was found is approximately three tenths of a mile from Pope's home.

Police have not confirmed if the body belonged to Pope, but say the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore is working to identify the body.
