Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- A body found in Duluth's Lincoln Park neighborhood last Tuesday has now been positively identified by the St. Louis county medical examiner as that of a woman missing since July 20, 2013.

The family and community held extensive search efforts to find 74–year–old Dale Gerard, who was last seen getting off a DTA bus on Piedmont Ave. and 7th St. in July.

Gerard's decomposed body was found at the intersection of 19th Ave. W and 2nd St. along a fence and brush line about 100 yards north of the intersection.
