MONTROSE, Colo. (AP) - Family members have found the body an 82-year-old woman with dementia who went missing in the Uncompahgre (uhn-kuhm-PAH’-gray) National Forest.

The Montrose Daily Press reports (http://goo.gl/WJA3jq ) Mary Finnegan, of Delta County, was found Tuesday night about 3 miles from where her car was discovered abandoned July 24. She was last seen leaving a bowling alley in Montrose on July 15.

The Mesa County Sheriff’s Office looked for the woman for several days but called off the search Thursday. Between 40 and 60 people searched for her each day since her car was found on a rough road in the forest near the border of Mesa and Montrose counties.

Searchers didn’t have many clues to go on because rain had washed away footprints. Heavy brush also made it difficult to move around and to see the ground.
