Officials with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park say they have found the body of the missing Ohio woman Susan Clements on Tuesday afternoon two miles west of the Clingmans Dome parking area and about a mile south of the Appalachian Trial — which would put the location roughly near the Huggins Creek and Takassah Ridge area on the North Carolina side of the park.
The GSMNP said it will release further details when they become available. You can read the release below:
