Cops who found her body in Monkton, Ayrshire in Scotland say she had been partially eaten by wildlife.

It’s thought her car had broken down on the country road in mid-December, and called roadside assistance.

The woman, from the Airdrie area, then took a stroll while waiting for them to arrive in fields nearby.

On December 18 her car was found and a missing persons inquiry was launched.

The next day police located her body close to where her car was left using sniffer dogs.

Cops believe a fox or badger may be responsible for the mauling and the death is not being treated as suspicious.

A source told The Daily Record: “She had phoned the AA to try to get them to come and help. 

“But rather than waiting with the vehicle, she got out and walked away, cutting through the fields. 

“She’s then died while she’s been going through the fields.”
