Jackson, WY (AP) - A Jackson church says a woman who disappeared on a church mission trip to Nicaragua has been found dead.

The pastor of the Presbyterian Church of Jackson Hole, the Rev. Paul Hayden, told the Jackson Hole Daily Monday evening that Karen Colclough's body was identified in Nicaragua by a church member and another person associated with the trip.

The 37-year-old worked on a project with a Seattle-based non-profit, Agros International, in Tierra Nueva, Nicaragua last week. She disappeared on the final day of the trip after saying she was going for a run on the beach.

Agros International posted its condolences to Colclough's family on its Facebook page but didn't provide any details about how she died.
