A woman's body found last week off the Rock Creek Greenway in Tullahoma, Tennessee, is believed to be that of Debbie White, the 58-year-old who was reported missing about 10 days ago.

Winston Brooks, spokesman for the Tullahoma Police Department, said local police and officials from Metro Nashville Police found the body about 120 feet off of the Rock Creek Greenway near the D.W. Wilson Community Center.

Tullahoma investigator Tyler Hatfield, the lead detective on the case, does not suspect foul play, Brooks said.

An autopsy is underway and investigators hope to be able to confirm the body's identity, though officials believe it could be White.

White was reported missing June 16. Her car was parked in a lot at the community center where the greenway begins, Brooks said. She was last seen walking about 10:30 a.m. CDT on North Collins Street, near the community center, according to a report last week in the Tullahoma News newspaper. Authorities believed she was headed toward the greenway.

The greenway is about 1.5 miles long and winds from the community center along Rock Creek before branching behind Tullahoma High School, with one branch terminating at the school and another near Cedar Lane.

Brooks said officials will release more information when they learn the results of the autopsy.
