Deputy: Body found is missing elderly Selma woman

MARION, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say a body found near a rural intersection in Perry County is that of Virginia Colee, an 85-year-old Selma woman missing more than five weeks.

Dallas County Chief Deputy Randy Pugh said Friday the decomposed
body was found by state highway maintenance workers near the
intersection of Alabama Highways 183 and 219 in a part of Perry County that is in a national forest. The Selma Times-Journal reports that the woman's vehicle also was found, but details were
sketchy.

Colee was last seen leaving a Wal-Mart on Sept. 10 in her car.

Security tapes at the store did not suggest foul play.
