SARAI (suh-RYE) SIERRA -- AN AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHER -- NEW YORK RESIDENT -- AND MOTHER OF TWO CHILDREN -- HAS BEEN FOUND DEAD IN ISTANBUL, TURKEY TEN DAYS AFTER RELATIVES IN THE U.S. LAST HEARD FROM HER.

A STATE-RUN TURKISH NEWS AGENCY SAID THE BODY OF A WOMAN WAS DISCOVERED SATURDAY EVENING NEAR THE REMNANTS OF ANCIENT CITY WALLS.

AND POLICE LATER IDENTIFIED THE BODY AS SIERRA'S.

THE TURKISH NEWS AGENCY SAYS 11 PEOPLE HAVE BEEN DETAINED BY POLICE FOR QUESTIONING.

DETAILS AREN'T CLEAR YEAR ON EXACTLY HOW SHE DIED -- WITH ONE OVERSEAS NEWS ORGANIZATION REPORTING THAT SHE WAS STABBED TO DEATH -- WHILE ANOTHER SAID SHE SUFFERED A HEAD WOUND -- SUGGESTING SHE MAY HAVE BEEN HIT WITH AN OBJECT.

CONTACTED BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS -- POLICE REFUSED TO COMMENT ON THE CASE.

THE DISAPPEARANCE OF TOURISTS IN TURKEY IS RARE -- AND LOCAL POLICE HAD SET UP A SPECIAL UNIT TO TRY TO FIND HER.

A TURKISH MISSING PERSONS ASSOCIATION ALSO JOINED IN THE SEARCH -- HANDING OUT FLYERS WITH PHOTOS OF THE MISSING NEW YORKER -- WHOSE CHILDREN ARE AGES 9 AND 11.
