After an intensive search involving police from multiple jurisdictions, dogs and two groups of volunteers, the body of 83-year-old Victoria Kong has been found.
U.S. Park Police say that Kong's body was found about 2 p.m. yesterday by a team with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police. She was found north of National Airport, about 30 feet from a bike trail in a wooded area.
She was last seen Friday leaving the airport on foot, walking north along a paved trail for hikers and bicycles. Her granddaughter Alexandria Anderson says Kong was showing early signs of dementia. Kong's family says they were waiting for her to be escorted off her flight from Barbados by wheelchair, but she never showed up.
Police say the investigation into Kong's death will continue.
