Sarah Beadle, 38, of Fort Worth, Texas, went missing on Tuesday.

There is no potable water available along the trail she was on or even creek water to use for cooling, according to Jeff Schwartz, who works in the inner canyon. He says they had run out of water when that happened.

Rangers searching Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona for a woman who disappeared while hiking with her children said on Thursday that they believe they have found her body. The NPS began search and rescue operations Wednesday.

Beadle was hiking with her kids down the South Kaibab Trail, and park rangers later found her backpack near that trail's junction with the River Trail.

Two Hizb militants killed in encounter
The security forces are going after militants as part of operation "hunt down" and on the basis of a "hit list" of militants. Security personnel lobbed tear gas shells and fired a few shots in the air to restore law and order in the area, he said.

Davis said circumstances of the incident, including how the woman and the children were separated, is being investigated by the National Park Service and the Coconino County Medical Examiner.

The area, which is known for having extreme temperatures early during the day, has two trails that hikers can take.

Dr. Sarah Beadle passed away while hiking with her daughter and nephew, who were later found safe.

Mrs. Beadle was working as an emergency physician at a hospital in Texas.
