NIKISKI, Alaska (AP) - The body of a 64-year-old Nikiski woman missing for days this week was found Thursday morning near her home.

Alaska State Troopers say searchers found the body of Sharon Eileen Berghone in a wooded area within walking distance of the residence.

Family members last saw her at her home Monday night. They reported she used a walker to get around and carried an oxygen tank.

Troopers say in a web posting that her body will be sent to the State Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy.
