New Mexico Search and Rescue found the body of a missing 75-year-old hiker on Monday afternoon.
According to New Mexico State Police, volunteers found Audrey Kaplan of Dallas 2.10 miles north of the Santa Fe Ski Basin, more than a mile northwest of where she was last seen on Windsor Trail with her husband.
Kaplan had been missing since Wednesday. Her husband told police they were mushroom hunting when he took a break and waited for her at the trailhead, but she never showed up.
The Office of the Medical Investigator will determine her cause of death.
State police say crews are in the process of recovering her body.
An estimated 80 volunteers helped with the search and rescue operation.
