A great day at The Club Treasure Island raising money for The Children's Cancer Center

Tampa, Fla.-(Newsradio 970 WFLA)-The Hillsborough County Medical Examiner has identified a body pulled from Tampa Bay as a missing Palmetto woman.

The body, found by Florida Fish and Wildlife, is  that of 73 year-old Velma Jean Dobbs.  Dobbs had been missing since September 22 after her gray Hyundai Santa Fe was found parked on the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. The vehicle was unlocked and her keys in the ignition.

The body was found a day after the vehicle, but it took several weeks to get a positive identification.

Investigators says Dobbs had been considered as missing and endangered after a recent attempt to harm herself.
