There a grim end to a months long search for a missing woman on the Central Coast. Nancy Colleen Woodrum disappeared from her home outside of Paso Robles in May. Despite massive ground and air search, no sign was found of her.

In September, San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s detectives recovered evidence which led them to Carlo Alberto Fuentes Flores of Paso Robles. After further investigation, the 42 year old man was arrested this week.

Detectives say after questioning, he led them to Woodrum’s body, which was off of Highway 58 in the eastern part of the county. There’s no word yet on a motive, or the cause of death for the 62 year old woman.
