ANKARA, Turkey (AP) - Turkey's state-run news agency says a missing New York City woman has been found dead in Istanbul, and police have detained nine people in connection with the case.

Sarai Sierra, a 33-year-old mother of two, went missing while vacationing alone in Istanbul. She had last been heard from on Jan. 21, the day she was due back home.

Her body was discovered Saturday near the remnants of some ancient city walls in a low-income district.

The Anadolu Agency said police have detained nine people for questioning in Istanbul.

It gave no other information about the arrests.

The private NTV news channel reports Sierra was stabbed to death. It said police identified her through her driver license.
