A body found by a hiker on Mount Lemmon is believed to be that of an Oro Valley woman who went missing last week.
The Pima County sheriff's office says a hiker found the woman's body Tuesday afternoon.
Sheriff's spokesman deputy Renee Carlson says the body fit the description of 51-year-old Janet Rennspies. She says sheriff's homicide detectives are investigation the death.
Oro Valley Police launched a search for Rennspies after her family reported her missing on Thanksgiving. Her family found her car in the parking lot of the Mount Lemmon observatory on Friday and search and rescue teams began scouring the area.
