CLEMMONS, N.C. (WXII) — The body of a Clemmons woman who was reported missing by family on April 18 was found Monday by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.

Boats from the Lewisville Fire Department’s Water Rescue Unit were sent to the Yadkin River parallel to Tanglewood Park where the body of Gayle Annette Fleming, 63, was found entangled in brush south of the Tanglewood Park canoe access point, not far from where her car was initially located.

The body was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, where the Medical Examiner’s Office identified it was that of Flemming. Although the toxicology report hasn’t yet determined a cause of death, the examination found no signs of trauma.

FCSO completed the investigation with the assistance of the Durham County Sheriff’s Office specialized K-9 cadaver unit and the Lewisville Fire Department’s Water Rescue Unit.

Fleming was last seen April 17 when she left her home on Lake Cliff Drive, deputies said.

The red Lexus she was driving was found the following Wednesday within Tanglewood Park, but there was no sign of Fleming, deputies said.
