Family says Jo Woods' body discovered by authorities in NM

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Two weeks after disappearing from her home in Dimmitt, family members say authorities discovered the body of Jo Woods in Colfax County, New Mexico.

A sad ending to this two week search, Jo Woods' grandson says he believes authorities discovered the body of his grandmother. Family members received the first piece of information in two weeks Monday morning that Jo Woods' 1996 Mercury Cougar was discovered 30 miles west of Raton, New Mexico.

The 72-year-old disappeared on September 7, without her medication or her oxygen; two things family members say Woods couldn't go for long without. NewsChannel 11 spoke with her grandson, Clint Robison, who lives in Lubbock earlier this afternoon. At the time he says the discovery of her car gave his family some hope and that the search would continue on. "It was found on a rancher's property and it was empty and stuck in the mud and keys found 15 feet from the car," says Robison.

He says he received a call shortly after 5 p.m. that authorities discovered a body near his grandmother's car on the rancher's property. Robison says the body authorities discovered was wearing the same clothing that his grandmother was reported missing in.

Authorities cannot confirm that the body found was Jo Woods. Colfax County Sheriff's Office did say however that a deputy was on the scene which is currently under investigation.

NewsChannel 11 will continue to follow this story and bring you any information we receive from Northeastern New Mexico.
