News release


On March 16, 2024, at approximately 3:45 pm, Emerson RCMP received a report of a missing 44-year-old female from the RM of Stuartburn. She was last seen leaving her residence in a vehicle at approximately 4:50 am.

Officers attended to the home and were advised by family members that her vehicle had been located in the ditch, approximately one kilometre away, and that they had searched the immediate area earlier in the day without success.

Emerson RCMP, along with units including Search and Rescue (SAR), Police Dog Services (PDS) and Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), attended to the scene and located the body of the 44-year-old female in a wooded area.

The cause of death has yet to be determined as we await the results of the autopsy, but there are indications the 44-year-old may have succumbed to the elements when she wandered away from her vehicle after hitting the ditch.

Emerson RCMP, along with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, continue to investigate.
