UPDATE: Officials believe they have found the body of Christine Cummings, as of Wednesday afternoon. Read an updated piece here.

According to a Wednesday morning update from Fort Collins Police Services, the vehicle belonging to Fort Collins resident Christine Cummings, 32, has been located in Poudre Canyon.

Officials took to Facebook on Wednesday morning to notify the public that Cummings' Jeep was found at the Pingree Park area. Multiple search and rescue crews have been activated in the area and volunteers are asked to keep away from this search effort, as navigating the surrounding terrain presents safety concerns.

Additional updates will be provided as they become available.

Christine Cummings was last seen in Fort Collins on December 29 and was reported missing by a relative on January 1. At the time she went missing, it was believed she may have been hiking, though details indicating where were sparse. Initially, places as far away as Yellowstone National Park were notified of her missing status.

At last update, foul play was not expected in Cummings' disappearance. Police have asked those that were in the Pingree Park area on December 29 to contact them with any information that may help their search.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact Fort Collins Detective Marty Shaw at 970-416-2051.

The Pingree Park area in Larimer County is a popular spot for outdoor recreation on the Front Range. This is in the same area as the CSU Mountain Campus. Many trails exist in this area, ranging in length from a couple miles to longer options like 'Flowers,' a 17.9-mile one-way hike.
