The body of 81-year-old Doris Phillips was discovered by the Ellis County Sheriff's office late Friday night at a location near Bardwell, off of Farm-to-Market 984.
The sheriff's office has been processing the scene throughout the night and will hold a press conference later this afternoon.
The family has been notified.
Officials were notified by family members about the missing woman after the Reagor Springs resident could not be reached at her home on Tuesday, July 25 and July 26.
Phillips lived by herself on Old Church Road between Ennis and Waxahachie, near the Texas Motorplex.
