A woman found dead in a wooded area behind an eastern Missouri apartment complex had been reported missing two days earlier.

Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer on Monday identified the victim as 57-year-old Kathleen Ragan of Imperial. Her body was found Saturday in Imperial.

Boyer says relatives contacted authorities on Thursday to report Ragan as missing. An autopsy is planned to determine cause of death but Boyer says foul play is not suspected.
