Missing Bullhead City Runner Found Dead, Likely Heat-Related


Police in Bullhead City say a woman reported missing after she didn’t return from a run Thursday has been found dead in the desert, apparently from heat-related exposure. Police said Saturday no foul play was suspected in the death of the woman, previously identified as 54-year-old Ana Franco. A police statement said Mohave County Search and Rescue found her body in the desert about five miles from where she began what reportedly was planned to be a two-mile run.
