Atlanta, Georgia (AP) --

Georgia authorities are investigating whether foul play was involved in the death of a 63-year-old Florida woman who was traveling on an Amtrak train.

Barbara Arteta was traveling with her husband from Virginia to
Sanford, Fla. when she disappeared. Her body was found Thursday
near railroad tracks in rural Jesup, Ga.

Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokesman John Bankhead said
Monday that an autopsy concluded Arteta died from multiple
injuries, including a broken neck. He said authorities have yet to
determine whether her death was an accident or whether foul play
was involved.

Investigators are urging anyone who was aboard Amtrak Auto Train
53 with the victim to call the GBI tip line at 1-800-597-8477.
