UPDATE: Phoenix Police have released a new press release on the missing woman found dead: 

"On 12/07/17 at 9:00 am, the Phoenix Police Department was conducting a welfare check on Diane Sanders, a 72-year-old female at her residence on Luman Road. The Phoenix Police Department was unable to contact Sanders at her residence and neighbors in the area stated they hadn’t seen her in a couple of days.

With the assistance from a Jackson County Sheriff’s Department K-9, a wooded area along Bear Creek behind Sander’s residence was searched.

At 1:40 pm, the body of Diane Sanders was found in Bear Creek about ¼ mile north of her residence.

The Phoenix Police Department and Jackson County Medical Examiner’s Office are now investigating the death. There are no signs of fowl play and the cause of death is unknown at this time. A cause of death will be determined next week after an autopsy has been performed.

If anyone had any contact with Sanders in the past 48 hours, please contact the Phoenix Police Department at (541)535-1113."
