A body found south of Nordegg last week has been confirmed to be that of Anina Hundsdoerfer, an Edmonton woman who has been missing since March.

RCMP search teams found Hundsdoerfer’s body after it was spotted by a grader operator on May 12, just off the road in a forested area several kilometres north of where her car had been discovered.

Results from an autopsy identified the 32 year-old researcher on Thursday.

Police said there was no signs of foul play and the death is considered to be non-criminal in nature at this time.

The investigation is now closed and no further information will be released, police said.

Hundsdoerfer’s family thanks the public for phoning in tips and helping in the search.

Hundsdoerfer, a forest entomologist who studied the mountain pine beetle, was last seen on March 22 in Edmonton. She was reported missing the next day by her roommate and her car was found on March 25, abandoned on the side of the Forestry Trunk Road, Hwy 734, south of Nordegg.

RCMP searched the area using dogs, helicopters, snowmobiles and on foot, fighting heavy snow accumulation.

A group of Hundsdoerfer’s friends put up several billboards in the area asking for anyone with more information on the missing woman to call police.
