GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - The Mesa County Sheriff's Office says the probe into the disappearance of a 54-year-old woman last week is now a death investigation.

It announced Saturday that the body found in the desert north of Grand Junction on Thursday night is that of Kathleen Lynn Stetzel. Investigators have been searching for her 31-year-old son since her disappearance and say they still want to talk to him about his mother.
