HOOD COUNTY -- Law enforcement officials believe they have found the body of a woman who disappeared nearly 35 years ago.

The Hood County Sheriff's Office says they are waiting for DNA results to determine whether Helen Holladay has been found. A truck matching the description of Holladay's, with skeletal remains inside, were pulled from Lake Granbury on Thursday.

An ID with Holladay's name was also found, and her family has been notified, the sheriff's office said on Friday.

According to a 1996 article written by our content partners at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Holladay was last seen at her weekend home on Lake Granbury in September 1979.

Neighbors say they saw her involved in a struggle with her husband, Herman, who died in 1987. Helen Holladay was declared dead one year prior.
