MONTROSE, Colo. (AP) - Authorities say a body that was found in western Colorado is that of a Utah woman who was reported missing at the beginning of May.

The Montrose County coroner’s office identified the woman Thursday as 54-year-old Kimberly Burchell, of Moab. Investigators have not said how she died, but they do not suspect foul play.

The Montrose Daily Press reports Burchell, whose body was found Tuesday, was last seen alive May 4 as she walked away from friends while antler shed hunting. She was found dead in Lion Canyon near Paradox.

Results of a toxicology test are pending.
