BENZIE COUNTY, Mich. -- A 47-year-old woman who has been missing for more than two months was found dead.

The family of Adrienne Quintal has been sending updates through a Facebook account, and the Benzie County Sheriff's Office confirmed the news Saturday.

Quintal's body was found in the area of Indian Hill Road and Hooker Road around 1:30 p.m. Saturday. The body was in approximately three feet of water in a flooded area of the Platte River, according to a press release.

The initial investigation showed no signs of foul play. An autopsy will be done to determine the official cause of death.

The Southfield woman was last heard from on Oct. 17 around 2:45 a.m.

“I would do anything to find my sister. I just desperately want to know that she’s okay," said Quintal's oldest sister , Jenny Bryson, told WXYZ last month.

It was also reported Quintal was involved in a shootout with two men at a cabin up north. Quintal called a family friend for help, telling them she shot one man in the face.

Police searched the area around the cabin and discovered bullet holes from the cabin toward the outside, but never found any blood. Quintal's boots and cell phone were found on the roof of the cabin.

MSP and the Benzie County Sheriff's Office are investigated the case.
