Body found in NW Reno is that of missing woman, 61

RENO " Police say a body found in the hills on the northwest side of Reno is that of a 61-year-old Reno woman who had been missing for a month.

Gail Duncan's husband reported her missing on March 23 after she failed to return from her regular morning walk.

A hiker contacted the Washoe County Sheriff's Office after he found a body on Sunday in the lower Keystone Canyon area north of Kings Row.

Police said Thursday that medical examiners identified her with the use of dental records. An autopsy is pending, but investigators say her death does not appear to have been the result of a crime.
