WINHALL, Vt. - Vermont state police confirm human remains found near a Bennington County hiking trail earlier in the week are those of a woman missing since last month.

Troopers say the body has been positively identified as 59-year old Helen Holmes, of Townshend.

Holmes' body was found Wednesday, off Route 11 in the Town of Winhall.

Authorities first noticed the red Subaru belonging to Holmes, then found the remains a short distance away.

Holmes was last seen at her home on the morning of September 3.

Full autopsy results are pending, but state police say they do not suspect foul play in her death.
