LONE STAR, Texas (KLTV) – A fisherman found the body of a missing Lone Star woman Tuesday, six days after she disappeared.

Brenda Leftwich was last seen last Wednesday evening walking south on Highway 259 back to her apartment complex in Lone Star.

Her body was found Tuesday on the shore of Lone Star Lake.

The lake is about a hundred yards from the apartments where Leftwich lived.

Police had scoured the area looking for clues, but came up empty handed, except for some security video from a local business.

Officer Kenny Taylor, who’s the missing woman’s son-in-law, said authorities had searched for her since she disappeared.

“We ran search teams, we’ve searched the lake now with drones and dogs out. We’ve done everything,” Taylor said.

Authorities spoke with neighbors the day Taylor’s wife discovered she was missing, but the neighbors said they hadn’t seen anything unusual.

“The day she went missing was her late husband’s birthday, and they were going to go over to his tombstone in Hughes Springs and put flowers on his grave,” Taylor said.

“Hopefully, you know, the good Lord brings her back to us. There’s really nothing else we could do at this time,” Taylor said.

Police said she had medical issues, which added urgency to the search.
