The Washoe County Medical Examiner’s Office has positively identified the body found Thursday in the Skyline Blvd. and McCarran Blvd. as that of Missing Person Luanne Oakes.
Police say there are no signs of foul play and the death is not being treated as suspicious.
Fifty-seven-year-old Luanne Oaks was reported missing Wednesday by a friend who hadn't seen her in more than 24 hours. Crews started a search in the Caughlin Ranch area, since Oaks was known to hike in that area occasionally.
Her car was found in a turnout near Skyline Boulevard, but she wasn't with the car.
