WHITE COUNTY, GA (CBS46/AP) -

Police have identified a woman found at the base of Yonah Mountain in White County Monday night.

Virginia Grace Hill, 27, was discovered by hikers around 8:45 p.m.

Authorities believe Hill was alone when she fell. A hiker spotted the body and called 911.

Hill's sister, Carolina Mutch, tells the Gainesville Times that Hill played on the Chestatee High School basketball team. Mutch says Hill was an active person and it's not common for her sister to hike on her own.

Police do not believe foul play was involved.
