Crawford County authorities say the body of a missing 57-year-old woman has been found in a heavily-wooded area.

The Crawford County Sheriff's Department says a landowner setting up a deer stand near Steelville on Saturday discovered the body of 57-year-old Mary Zehnle. She was separated from her sister on Wednesday while they were taking a nature walk to find items to make a wreath. Her family says Zehnle had health problems.

Zehnle's body was found a couple of miles from where she went missing.

The department says an autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death.
