The body of a miss­ing 23-year-old woman who was last seen in Drumheller has been found in a densely wooded ru­ral area south­west of Ed­mon­ton.

Kelsey Ni­cole Kramer’s body was dis­cov­ered near the Ge­ne­see Nat­u­ral Area, north of St. Fran­cis. RCMP dis­cov­ered Kramer’s ve­hi­cle, a green 2006 Ford Freestyle, at an undis­closed lo­ca­tion near Bre­ton. RCMP be­lieve she was driv­ing in Bre­ton’s de­tach­ment area when she dis­ap­peared.

Kramer had been re­ported miss­ing by her mother to the Dray­ton Val­ley RCMP on Tues­day, March 22. In­ves­ti­ga­tion by po­lice had de­ter­mined that Kramer was last seen and heard from on the night of Satur­day, March 19 near Drumheller and was be­lieved to be head­ing back to Dray­ton Val- ley.

The RCMP Miss­ing Per­sons Unit was en­gaged as well as the Ma­jor Crimes Unit from Ed­mon­ton. Par­tic­i­pat­ing in the search of var­i­ous lo­ca­tions were the RCMP’s Spe­cial Tac- tical Oper­a­tions troop, Po­lice Dog Ser­vices, and RCMP Air Ser­vices.

An au­topsy is sched­uled for this week to de­ter­mine the cause and man­ner of death.
