Police are trying to identify the body of a woman found in Santa Teresa

Police spent Friday searching for clues in a patch of desert behind Santa Teresa Elementary School.

That's where a woman walking her dog discovered a body early in the morning.

In a joint investigation, El Paso Police and Dona Ana County Sheriff's Deputies are trying to identify the remains.

Police say the body is similar in age to 55-year-old Gloria Marmolejo, the grandmother who disappeared from East El Paso last weekend.

Police could not positively identify the body or elaborate on it's condition.

The medical examiner was called out to the scene.
