The body of Patricia Myers was recovered by detectives in a wooded area along Harlem River Drive and 159th Street in Harlem at 7:30 p.m. Monday.

The medical examiner will make the positive identification.

Her nephew, Andros Topping, had already been charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter.

Myers was last seen in her apartment on Grand Concourse in the Claremont section of the Bronx last month.

Police later discovered blood there, as well as the oxygen tank Myers needed to breathe.

The 37-year-old Topping, who police said had just moved in with Myers after his release from prison on April 18, allegedly told his brother he “did something bad.”

Authorities say the suspect had confessed to detectives that he put the body in a suitcase and dumped it somewhere.
