Update: Remains Found Believed To Be Missing Woman's

By Austin Robertson. CREATED Aug 11, 2013

Weeks of searching for a missing woman with Alzheimer's may have come to an unfortunate end.

The Benton County Sheriff's Office says it believes search crews have found Hellen Cook's remains near a lake where some of her belongings were discovered.

Cook, 72, walked away from her home near Warsaw nearly a month ago. Authorities believe a DNA test will positively ID the remains they found as being hers.
