The body of a woman found Wednesday in the Sulphur River in Southwest Arkansas has been identified as a Bowie County woman who has been missing since December.

The Bowie County Sheriff's Office confirms the remains have been identified using dental records as 63-year-old Elizabeth Ramsey, who was last seen at her home in Texarkana on December 17, 2013.

Ramsey's white 1996 four-door Dodge Intrepid was located a few days later, parked at the Lake Wright Patman Spillway. 

A search was conducted in that area and in the water, but there was no sign of Ramsey, who had reportedly been depressed, suicidal and was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor.

A couple of fishermen discovered the remains on Wednesday morning in the Sulphur River, not far from the Hwy 71 access on the Sulphur River just north of Doddridge.

Officials say foul play is not suspected in her death.
