ARLINGTON, Texas -

The Tarrant County medical examiner has identified a body found in east Arlington as that of a missing elderly woman.

Family members reported 77-year-old Maria Arrocha missing on Dec. 18. She suffered from Alzheimer's and wasn't wearing any shoes or warm clothes when she disappeared, they said.

Officers who were searching for her found her body Thursday afternoon in a wooded area near Stadium Drive. That's less than a mile away from where she was last seen.

The medical examiner said there were no signs of foul play in the woman's death. She died from exposure to the elements.
