A 44-year-old woman from the R.M. of Stuartburn has died after she went missing from her home early Saturday morning.
According to the report made to Emerson RCMP at 3:45 p.m. on Saturday, the woman left in a vehicle nearly 12 hours earlier - around 4:50 a.m. Family members indicated to officers that the vehicle had been found earlier in the day, in a ditch about 1 kilometre away, but after searching the immediate area, they were unable to find the woman.
Emerson RCMP, along with search and rescue, police dog services and remotely piloted aircraft systems, began their search and found the woman's body in wooded area. 
The cause of death has yet to be determined as authorities await the results of an autopsy, but RCMP say there are indications the woman may have succumbed to the elements when she wandered away from her vehicle after hitting the ditch.
RCMP, along with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, continue to investigate.
