Jupiterimages/Thinkstock(NAGS HEAD, N.C.) — Police in North Carolina are searching for the body of an Ohio mom after her ex-boyfriend confessed to his brother that he strangled her during a vacation trip.

So far police have been unable to find any sign of Lynn Jackenheimer, 33, or her ex-boyfriend Nathan Summerfield.

Summerfield, 27, has been called a “person of interest” in Jackenheimer’s disappearance.

The former couple spent the week vacationing in Nags Head, N.C., with their 3-year-old son and Jackenheimer’s 13-year-old daughter.

On Sunday, Summerfield returned to Ohio and dropped the two children off with family, when he reportedly confessed to his brother that he killed his ex-girlfriend.

Police in Ohio, along with the Dare County Sheriff’s Office in North Carolina, began coordinating an investigation and a search of the Nags Head area.

“I don’t believe she is in Ashland County. I don’t believe she ever came back from Nags Head,” Carl Richert, a captain with the Ashland County Sheriff’s Department, told ABC News’ affiliate WVEC.

Summerfield was last seen on Sunday driving a silver Honda Civic. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Ashland County Sheriff’s Department at 419- 289-3911.
