CHINO VALLEY, AZ - Arizona authorities say the body of a missing Chino Valley woman has been found in a desert area in Wickenburg.
Yavapai County Sheriff's officials say the body of 37-year-old Jaime Andrews was discovered about 2 p.m. Tuesday by search teams.
Details aren't immediately available. Sheriff's officials say the body was taken to the county medical examiner's office to determine the cause of death.
Andrews hadn't been seen since Sept. 4. Her family thought she had gone to her father's ranch in La Paz County, but she never arrived.
A rancher found Andrews' abandoned car Sunday in a remote area west of Wickenburg known as Bullard's Wash.
That triggered an air and ground search that included helicopter flyovers and search teams in vehicles, quads and on horseback.
