Yesterday, officers from the Anniston Police Department were walking along the road near the Calhoun County line when they spotted an overturned vehicle with a body inside. The vehicle was located in a heavily wooded ravine off of Cleburne County Road 24.

Authorities determined that the vehicle belonged to Mize, and today identified the body found as the missing woman as well.

Investigators say they have not determined a preliminary cause of death at this time.

The dog was still on the scene, but ran into the woods when police approached. Family members later returned to the scene where they were able to capture the dog.
