June 15, 2010
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – The body found in a canyon in El Paso County has been identified as a missing 17-year-old girl.
Sydney Causey’s body was found Sunday near a rock formation called Punch Bowls. Her father had reported her missing the day before after she missed a flight to visit her mother in Texas.
The girl had been staying with friends for the last two weeks. Manitou Springs police spokesman Lt. Jim Hopkins says the friends told the father that Syndey had gone hiking with friends near the Punch Bowls.
An autopsy didn’t determine how she died. Authorities are waiting for the results of toxicology tests.
