PAHRUMP, Nev. (AP) - Authorities say the body of a 27-year-old California woman was found in the Nevada desert about 45 miles from Las Vegas.

Nye County Sheriff Tony DeMeo said the body of Margay Edwards was found Thursday near a dirt track.

Edwards is from Los Osos, California, which is near San Luis Obispo. DeMeo told KEYT-TV in Santa Barbara that her death is suspicious and the cause is under investigation.

DeMeo said Edwards had been staying in a hotel in Las Vegas, and it was unclear whether she was alone or with friends. He said her family most recently contacted her in the second week of September.
