Authorities in Washington County have identified a body found in the Virgin River this month as a missing Rockville woman.
Mary Soper, 64, disappeared Sept. 10 from her home in Rockville, said Springdale police Sgt. Garen Brecke. Soper was an active walker, so crews searched trails and canyons around her home, including in Zion National Park, Brecke said. An airplane, two helicopters and search dogs also were used, he said.
On Sept. 13, a Washington City man found the body near 2200 East off Washington Dam Road, police there have said.
