Gouverneur (WTNY) -- A Gouverneur woman reported missing earlier this month has been found dead.
Authorities say her death was accidental. Police say the body of 40 year old Elizabeth Smith was found Saturday in a wooded area near the Kinney Drugs Warehouse in Gouverneur.
She was reported missing back on April 7 after leaving her home, telling family members she was going for a walk. An individual discovered Smith's body and alerted police.
An autopsy conducted Sunday determined that Smith died as a result of hypothermia.
