PHILADELPHIA — A Philadelphia woman has turned up alive nearly 14 days after her family held a funeral and burial.

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

Services were held Aug. 3 after the Philadelphia medical examiner signed a death certificate for Jackson.

A spokesman for the Philadelphia Health Department says Jackson’s own son, as well as a social worker who knows her, viewed pictures of a body and identified it as belonging to Jackson. The body had been found July 20 on a Philadelphia street.

The body buried in what was thought to be Jackson’s grave will be exhumed in hopes of identifying the remains.
