MESA COUNTY, Colo. (KKCO) -- The search for a missing Loma woman has been called off.

The Mesa County Sheriff's Office says a deceased body was found at 9:45 Monday morning outside between N and O roads and 15 and 16 roads in Loma. Investigators believe it is the body of Roxanne Kostka, who went missing Saturday afternoon.

They say they recently learned that Kostka may have wanted to harm herself.

The sheriff's office will work with the Mesa County Coroner to determine the cause and manner of death, as well as a positive identification of the body.

The Colorado National Guard and Mesa County Search and Rescue helped the sheriff's office search for the 62-year-old woman.
