The trail, used by bicyclists and pedestrians, runs near the airport terminal, and parallels the Potomac River and the George Washington Memorial Parkway.

Searches for the woman continued Monday.

She was described as 5 feet 3 inches, 130 pounds, and wearing a long purple/brown dress with a flower design.
