RCMP confirmed on Tuesday that the woman found deceased on Friday west of Edmonton was Roze Burk.

The RCMP investigation continues and they are awaiting autopsy results from the medical examiner’s office.

The 68-year-old woman, from just east of Red Deer, had been missing since March 12.

Her family confirmed on Sunday that police had located her body on Friday morning.

Burk’s vehicle was spotted by RCMP during an air search on Friday. Officers had been working on a separate operation when they spotted Burk’s vehicle in a remote area, approximately 35 km south of Evansburg.

RCMP said they believe Burke’s vehicle became stuck and she left the vehicle to seek help. The area where she became stuck is not frequented by travellers. RCMP were able to recover her 2008 Ford Escape vehicle as well as her small dog, Jewel. The dog has been reunited with the Burk family.

Searches in Red Deer and the surrounding area were conducted by the Burk family, RCMP dog services, RCMP air services, and Red Deer County civilian search and rescue. In addition, concerned family members organized 50 to 60 people to search within the city.
