ROSWELL, NM (KWES) - A Roswell woman reported missing last week has been found dead.
Roswell police said the body of Sharon Berry, 74, was found in her pickup truck in a remote area about 14 miles east of Hagerman, early Friday morning.
The discovery was made by ranchers on horseback in the area.
Berry, who suffered from dementia, was reported missing on Thursday April 28, by her son, when she took her small dog and drove away from her house.
Authorities said foul play is not suspected in Berry's death.
Police said Berry was a member of the Roswell Police Department and Chaves County Sheriff's Office years ago during her career in law enforcement.
The investigation into her death is ongoing.
