Shelly Ingram, 43, was last seen in Wasilla on Aug. 4. The next day, the day she was reported missing, her cellphone pinged off a cell tower located near Mile 59 of the Parks Highway, around Zero Lake Park, troopers said.

Her body was found in Houston around 8 p.m. Friday. Troopers did not specify where exactly her body was found, but said no foul play is suspected in her death.

Ingram’s body was taken to the state medical examiner.
