The body of a white woman believed to be between 16 and 25 years old was found Wednesday at a waste disposal company in Mercer County.

State police said workers at Tri-County Industries Inc. on TCI Park Drive in Pine Township found the body about 3 p.m. Trucks from several parts of northwestern Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio bring trash to the site, troopers said.

Troopers said the woman, who had pierced ears, was clad in black yoga pants, black tank top and white ankle socks with green trim.

An autopsy is scheduled Thursday in Erie County.
