Missing South Dakota woman's body found near high school

SISSETON, S.D. - Authorities say the body of a Sisseton woman who had been missing for nearly two weeks has been found in rural Roberts County, in northeastern South Dakota.

The state Division of Criminal Investigation did not immediately release details about the death of 38-year-old Michelle Lufkins, who was reported missing Nov. 20.

Several law enforcement agencies are involved in the investigation, including local agencies and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Lufkins was found in a wooded area near the Sisseton high school. Investigators have been on the scene since Tuesday night.
