GLENWOOD SPRINGS – Authorities say a woman whose dismembered body was found in an apple orchard near Glenwood Springs doesn’t match the description of anyone reported missing in Garfield County.

The body was found Friday morning.

The sheriff’s office says the victim hasn’t been identified. She was a Caucasian woman between 20 and 35 who had brown hair with blonde highlights, multiple tattoos and extensive dental work.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Holly Hopple said Monday anyone who knows of a missing person matching that description should call authorities.

Hopple says a teenage boy discovered part of the body while clearing debris in an orchard about five miles west of Glenwood Springs.

She says authorities are still searching for remains and other evidence.
