HOUSTON (AP) - Searchers have discovered a woman's body in a wooded area of Houston.
Police are trying to identify the body located Monday night by volunteers with Texas EquuSearch.
Relatives of 48-year-old Norma Jean Scott had asked group members to help look for the woman, who's been missing since Thursday.

Officer J.C. Padilla says police were contacted after the body was located in an overgrown vacant lot.
An autopsy has been ordered.
