CUSHMAN, AR (AP) - The body of a 71-year-old woman who had been missing for days has been found in a remote area in far southwest Izard County.

Sheriff Tate Lawrence told the Batesville Daily Guard a man who was walking his dogs on his property found a car then discovered the body of Anna Cowden about 6 p.m. Sunday.

Lawrence says the property owner told authorities it appears Cowden had driven down an old, secluded logging road and tried to circle around to come back out when her vehicle became lodged between two trees.

She got out the vehicle and walked. Cowden was found about 100 yards away from her car.

Cowden was last seen Oct. 1 when she left her home in Cushman to clean a nearby church.
