Search and rescue teams believe that they have located the body of Christine Cummings, 32, after finding her vehicle at a trailhead on Colorado's Front Range.
Last seen on December 29 and reported missing on January 1, Cummings' Jeep was located on January 5 at the Emmaline Lake trailhead in the Pingree Park area near Fort Collins. Search efforts began immediately, with crews locating a body believed to be that of Cummings on the morning of January 6.
Foul play is not suspected and the official identification and cause of death will be released by the coroner's office at a later time.
"This community showed a truly remarkable outpouring of support in the effort to locate Christine," said FCPS Chief Jeff Swoboda. "We share your grief in this tragic loss of life, our deepest condolences are with Christine's family and everyone impacted by this heartbreaking outcome."
The Emmaline Lake Trailhead is quite small, accommodating four vehicles near the Colorado State University Mountain Campus. The most well-known trail at this spot is the 13-mile Emmaline Lake Trail, which is currently closed due to the Cameron Peak Fire, according to the Forest Service.
Condolences go out to the friends and family of Christine Cummings during this difficult time.
