PHILADELPHIA - A Philadelphia woman has turned up alive nearly two weeks after her family held a funeral and burial.

KYW-TV reports that 50-year-old Sharolyn Jackson showed up at a mental health facility last Friday.

A body found July 20 on a Philadelphia street had been identified as Jackson. A spokesman for the Philadelphia Health Department says Jackson's son and a social worker who knows her viewed pictures of the body and identified it as being hers.

Services for Jackson were held Aug. 3.

The now-buried body will be exhumed in hopes of correctly identifying the remains.
