Body Found During Search for Missing Woman

By  | 

RENO, NV - Washoe County search and rescue crews have found the body of a woman in the area where they were already looking for a missing woman. But the body hasn't yet been identified.

57-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 that area occasionally. Her car was found in a turnout near Skyline Boulevard, but she wasn't with the car.

Investigators haven't been suspecting foul play. When the body is identified, the family will be notified and the name officially released.
