The body of an American scientist who went missing on the Greek island of Crete a week ago has been found.

Greek authorities recovered the body of Suzanne Eaton, 59, on Monday evening about six miles from where she was last seen in the port city of Chania on July 2.

Police and firefighters, joined by local volunteers, on Friday searched an area near the village of Kolymbari outside Chania.

The expanded search to the village of Kolymbari used the help of specially trained dogs as well as equipment necessary for searching at sea, her friends, family and colleagues said in a Facebook post on Sunday.

Eaton's niece, Callie Broaddus, had traveled from Washington DC to assist in the search and said her aunt typically ran where there were steep edges.

Dr. Eaton was last seen playing the piano and was believed to have gone for a run between 3pm and 5pm.

'She changed out of her orange dress after that because we found the dress in her room,' Broaddus told CrimeOnline.

According to family, she spent much of her childhood in Armonk, New York, and in California.
