Her children, ages 10 and 11, are safe and accounted for, according to the National Park Service, which launched a missing person search for her in the park.

Searchers in the Grand Canyon National Park have found a body believed to be a Texas woman who went missing after she hiked into the canyon with two children who were found safe, officials said Thursday.

National Park officials say they found a body near the Black Bridge at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, approximately three-quarters of a mile from Phantom Ranch. The cause of death was not immediately known but there was no indication of foul play, she added.

The National Park Service is urging anyone who may have seen or talked to Beadle to contact its tip line at 888-653-0009. The kids were unharmed.

There must be a proper balance between Tests and limited overs cricket but the Indian board alone can't do it. Mithali has been playing for India since she was 16 and has regularly performed well for the team.

A hiking trip turned tragic for a Fort Worth family with ties to the East Texas area.

Charles Lawrence Springer, Sarah Beadle's older brother, said his sister had taken the children to several national parks and had also visited Yellowstone in Wyoming.

They say Beadle is an experienced backpacker and hiker who last hiked at the Grand Canyon in 2002.

Still, it's not uncommon to have one or two deaths a year primarily due to heat or dehydration, said Schwartz.
