Missing hiker found dead


A Cincinnati woman who disappeared while hiking in Great Smoky Mountains National Park was found dead Tuesday afternoon, according to the park’s public affairs office.

 They said Mitzie Sue “Susan” Clements, 53, was found by search crews two miles west of the Clingmans Dome parking area, where it was said she disappeared, and less than a mile south of the Appalachian Trail.

 She had been missing for a week.

 Clements was hiking with her daughter on the Forney Ridge Trail, near Andrews Bald, when the two separated.

 The case was considered unusual because most searches are resolved in a day.
