GRANDVILLE, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities say kayakers found the body of a missing western Michigan woman in the water of the flooded Grand River.

The body was found Tuesday night near the Grandville and Wyoming border, southwest of Grand Rapids.

MLive.com says authorities confirmed Wednesday that the remains are those of 51-year-old Mary Tornga.

Police say Tornga's husband reported her missing Sunday. They say he told them he and his wife had an argument while driving about 1 a.m. Sunday. He says she got out, planning to walk home.

Wyoming police Capt. Kim Koster says police are withholding the results of an autopsy conducted Wednesday.

    My fool of a stepmother did that once when we were traveling for a family vacation. Horrible argument in from of all four of us kids. She jumps out of the van and starts walking, and we're in South Dakota for goodness sake. It was awful. I am sure the husband of the no-longer-missing woman will be having some guilt issues ... but if she was murdered (I hope not!), they will probably look at him as a person of interest. Even momentarily. Next time you get in a fight with your spouse, please make sure they are safe before you decide to leave them.
