Missing Gouverneur woman found dead in woods


GOUVERNEUR — A Gouverneur woman has been found dead in a wooded area six days after she was reported missing.

Gouverneur police on Saturday afternoon recovered the body of Elizabeth A. Smith, 40, of 183 Grove St. Police responded at 12:36 p.m. after an unidentified 911 caller reported that he had discovered the body in the wooded area off Factory Street, between the Kinney Drugs warehouse and the Larch Circle apartment complex, less than a mile from her home.

The case is under investigation, and the cause of death will not be determined until an autopsy, scheduled for 2 p.m. today, is conducted.

Ms. Smith had told family members she was going for a walk about 6 a.m. April 7. She was reported missing Monday, and police searched by land and air throughout the week.
