ANNISTON, Ala. (AP) - Police say a body found inside a crashed car has been identified by medical examiners as that of a missing Anniston woman.

Anniston police Capt. Allen George said Tuesday investigators were still awaiting a cause of death from the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences, which was conducting an autopsy in Huntsville. But George said all indications at the scene point to 45-year-old Mize having died in a traffic accident.

Mize had been missing since June 24. Searchers found her vehicle Monday along County Road 24, just inside the Cleburne County line. Police said the car appeared to have left the road and struck a tree, then overturned in a wooded ravine. Mize’s dog was found alive in the area.
