Body of missing woman found near Williams Lake

The search for a missing woman ended sadly near Williams Lake this week.

On Monday, Dec. 2 the body of Susan Durham, a missing 59-year-old female from Vernon, was located on a remote logging road, off the West Fraser Road, said Barb McLintock of the BC Coroner’s Service Wednesday.

Durham was first reported missing on Nov. 9 by Quesnel RCMP after she left a Quesnel Hotel without her personal property and medication.

“She had ties to Vernon and Quesnel,” McLintock said.

“RCMP located Durham and her vehicle after receiving a report of a White Ford Explorer parked on a rural property outside of Williams Lake,” said Const. Lesley Smith, District Advisory NCO for North District Media Relations,  in a press release Wednesday.

Police said foul play is not suspected and therefore the BC Coroner Service will be handling the investigation.
