Body identified as Ellen Annala

A man scouting out a hunting spot found the badly decomposed remains of 87-year-old Ellen Annala in French Lake Township Oct. 24, reported the Wright County Sheriff's Department.

The elderly woman was reported missing by family members Aug. 11, and during the following weeks, an extensive search was conducted.

Sheriff's deputies and reserve officers, K-9 units, mounted patrol, area fire departments, family and friends assisted in looking for Annala. However, the efforts were not successful.

Annala was found on the east side of French Lake. The area is heavily wooded with thick underbrush.

An autopsy was performed, but the cause of death has yet to be determined.
