The search for missing Arizona State University professor, Debra Schwartz, concluded on Sunday after search crews found her body in an unnamed slot below the rim of Oak Creek Canyon. 

Schwartz was camping in the area last week when she disappeared, prompting an extensive search operation. 

Search teams spent three days intensively searching for Schwartz. Crews found Schwartz's body at 11:10 a.m. today. She was found half-a-mile from her campsite.

Coconino County Sheriff's Detectives will work with the medical examiner's office in determining the cause of death.
