Officials believe a body found Thursday morning in a wooded area in Oxford Township is that of a 63-year-old woman reported missing earlier this month.

According to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, Theresa Adams walked away Aug. 5 from a group home on Hummer Lake Road in Oxford Township.

Around 11 a.m. Thursday, an Oakland County Sheriff’s deputy discovered a body in the woods near Hummer Lake and Metamora Road after noticing a foul odor.

The Oakland County Crime Lab was called to the scene and the remains were turned over to the Oakland County Medical Examiner’s Office. An autopsy will be performed Friday.

“The identification of the body is not confirmed as Ms. Adams at this time, but it is believed to be her — pending Medical Examiner’s ID,” officials wrote in a statement Thursday.

Officials say they do not suspect foul play.
