Body found in remote Orange County

ORANGE, Calif. (AP) - A body has been found in a remote part of Orange County and authorities are trying to determine if it is a 36-year-old former Army sergeant who has been missing for the past two weeks.

The body was found late Thursday in an unincorporated area near Modjeska Canyon. Police from the city of Orange were called to the scene to investigate. They have been looking for Maribel Ramos who was last seen on surveillance video outside her apartment building May 2.

Ramos was reported missing a few days later after failing to show up for a softball game and speaking engagement at a veterans group.

Police have said there were no signs of foul play. But investigators said it was out of character for Ramos to suddenly cut ties.
