Melting snow has revealed the body of a 60-year-old north suburban woman who'd been missing since just before Christmas.
She had been reported missing on Dec. 21.
"The family reported that she had just walked off," said Winthrop Harbor Sgt. Leonard Cabrini.
An autopsy has been scheduled for Thursday, but foul play is not initially suspected.
"It's certainly possible (her death was due to cold) exposure, considering where she was found," said Lake County Coroner Dr. Richard Keller.
