A woman who went missing from Ashfork, Arizona last month has been found dead.

70-year-old Linda Schleizer walked away from her home outside Ashfork on July 16, and never returned. Her family was concerned because Schleizer suffered from severe Alzheimer’s, and when stressed, she had a tendency to withdraw or have panic attacks.  A Silver Alert was activated, and sheriff's deputies from Coconino County and Yavapai County launched an extensive search for the missing woman. Her body was found on July 30 in a shallow wash in the Juniperwood Ranches area, less than a mile away from her home.
