As the rain falls so do the tears. News a body recovered from the D&R canal Wednesday could be missing New Hope bartender Sarah Majoras has hit the community hard.
"It's gonna take a long time for the town to heal," shared Peter Markowicz. "It's such a small community, everybody cares for each other."
Investigators say the body was pulled from the canal just before 5:00pm. The discovery was made after police say a boot was found in the water. Investigators tell us the body appears to match the description of Majoras but they have not officially identified the body.
"Her smile, that's all you want people to remember, the smile."
"When she smiled it just made you laugh," added co-worker Patti Gabriel.
Wednesday night the bar Majoras worked at in New Hope for 16 years was closed. Inside co-workers and close friends tried to wrap their heads around the tragedy.
"You're not supposed to die when you re 39 years of age," added John Larsen owner of John and Peter's.

At this point, what happened to Sarah is a mystery. Authorities say they're still investigating and want anyone who saw or heard anything early Saturday morning to call the police.
