Missing woman's body found in Scott County

The body of a Scott County woman who had been missing since Valentine's Day has been found in a wooded area.

Sheriff Mike Lee says a beaver trapper found the body of Mittie Lou Harrison, 81, near a dirt road about four miles from Anderson & Harperville Road. The trapper then called authorities.

The sheriff says no foul play was apparent, but an autopsy is being conducted. He suspects Harrison may have gotten lost.

She was last seen February 14. Family members called the sheriff's department when she did not return home.
