Body of missing Aliso Viejo woman found?

July 29, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
A biker reportedly found a body while cycling through Woodfield Park in Aliso Viejo late Wednesday night. The biker reported smelling a foul odor and called 911. Investigators smelled the same odor, but could not find anything. They brought in a cadaver dog and found the body a short time later.

It is unknown whether the body is that of 76-year-old Margot Walters, who was reported missing earlier this month. However, authorities say it is the body of an elderly woman.

The woman had gone missing in her pajamas mid-July, leaving her personal belongings at home.

Walters's husband had reported the couple had a fight earlier that night, but claimed it wasn't a big deal. He told Eyewitness News he thought she had gone for a walk to clear her head. However, she never returned.

Walters's home is not far from the park.
