The search for Amanda Michayluk has come to an end.
RCMP say the body of the 34 year old woman was found Friday in a farmer’s field accessed by a non maintained grid road, about four kilometres from where she was last seen walking.
Early information suggests Michayluk died of hypothermia and exposure after she tried to walk home early Thursday morning during a snowstorm and got lost heading southbound in deep snow and whiteout conditions.
Michayluk hadn’t been since Thursday morning, when she walked away from collecting firewood with her father to seek help for their vehicle that got stuck in the snow.
A woman who was out collecting firewood with her father and walked to go get help after their vehicle got stuck in the snow has not been heard from since.
Amanda Michayluk, 34, was reported missing Thursday from a rural location about five kilometres south of Maidstone.
Maidstone RCMP said in a media release that officers followed her footprint’s in the snow to a nearby range road, where it appeared she was picked up by an unknown vehicle.
Michayluk is five-foot-nine-inches tall, weighs 115 pounds and has a thin build, with brown hair and brown eyes. She has glasses and was wearing a denim ski-doo suit, toque and winter boot.
Police said she requires medication which she does not have with her.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
