Body found is that of missing woman, 83May 6, 2013 @ 1:53 pm
WASHINGTON (AP) - Authorities say searchers have found the body of an 83-year-old woman who went missing after arriving at a Washington airport from Barbados.
U.S. Park Police spokesman Paul Brooks said in an email Monday afternoon that the body of Victoria Kong was found about 2 p.m. by a team with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police.
Brooks said Kong's body was found north of Reagan National Airport, about 30 feet from a bike trail in a wooded area.
He said the investigation into her death is continuing.
Kong was last seen Friday leaving the airport on foot.
Kong's family says they were waiting for her to be escorted off the flight by wheelchair, but she never showed up.
