Woman's body found by Arnold searchers
Family and friends of a missing woman found a body late Tuesday in a wooded area in Arnold near Annapolis, and police say they do not suspect foul play in the case. Anne Arundel County police say the body has not been positively identified, but it matches the general description of an adult woman who was reported missing to Baltimore police. Arundel authorities did not release her name. Friends and relatives of the woman went looking for her near where her car had been found abandoned, and they called police about 11 p.m. when they discovered a woman's body in woods near Jones Station Road and College Parkway. Police said investigators at the scene saw no obvious signs of trauma to the body. An autopsy will be conducted.
