AMES (KWWL)-- Police are trying to figure out how a woman was hit and killed by a train near the Iowa State Campus in Ames.

The woman, in early her 20's, was found during a search this morning in a wooded, grassy area near the Veenker Memorial Golf Course.

Friends say the girl was with them in the campus town area late Saturday night and became separated from the group.

Officials are not sure when she was hit. Her name has not been released.

Police say they are looking at Union Pacific Railroad schedules to see when trains move through the area.
