RUSKIN, FLA. (AP) - Florida authorities believe they have found the remains of a 75-year-old tourist from England who disappeared from a relative’s home this week in the Tampa area.

The sheriff’s office for Hillsborough County says they found the body of an elderly woman believed to be Enid Grace Hendricks in Ruskin on Friday morning.

A sheriff’s spokeswoman says foul play is not suspected.

Hendricks was in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease and had just arrived in Florida with her husband Tuesday evening. The next morning, she apparently wandered away from the home.

The family made a tearful plea for her return on Thursday.

Investigators are awaiting confirmation from the medical examiner’s office on her identity.
