LEMMON VALLEY, Nev. (KOLO) - The Washoe County Medical Examiner's Office has released the name of a woman found dead Tuesday in Lemmon Valley.

The body of 57-year-old Cynthia Andrews of north Reno (originally believed to be from Sparks) was found near a walking path near Lemmon Valley Drive between Buck and Military Road about noon January 29, 2019.

The cause and manner of death have not been determined, but Sheriff's spokesman Bob Harmon says there is no evidence so far of foul play.

Reno Police spokesman Travis Warren says Andrews had been reported missing by her family the day before the body was found, and the discovery was made while police were still investigating. Her family hadn't seen her for 12 days.

The Washoe County Sheriff's Office is investigating.
