Body Of Missing KY Woman Found In TN Creek

The search for an eastern Kentucky woman, missing for more than two days, is over after police found her body in a creek.

Police say Billie Jean Hill left her Middlesboro home Tuesday morning. Her body was found Thursday afternoon in Claiborne County, Tennessee.

Hill's family says she's been suffering from health problems and is easily confused.

Police found the 64-year-old woman's body near her abandoned car. Police say it looks like Hill fell down a wooded embankment into the creek.

They don't suspect foul play.

An autopsy will likely be conducted on Friday in Tennessee.
