COLONIE, N.Y. — The body of a former Lee woman and local activist who went missing about a week ago has been found.

Authorities found the body of Beverly Trombley, 77, on Tuesday morning by train tracks near Everett Road in Colonie. A CSX worker spotted the red jacket she was wearing at the time of her disappearance and called police, according to the Albany Times-Union.

Foul play is not suspected, and Trombley likely died from being exposed to the elements, Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple told the Times-Union. An autopsy will be conducted to determine her cause of death.

Trombley was reported missing by her son, who told WNYT-TV that his mother was moving back to Lee from Voorheesville, N.Y. The man said he left for Lee ahead of his mother, who was traveling alone; when she didn't arrive in Lee, he said, he called police.

Her vehicle was recovered in the area of West Albany Pocket Park on Braintree Street in Albany, according to a Facebook post by Colonie police.
