RCMP have confirmed the remains found Monday near the community of Schanzenfeld are that of missing 25-year-old Maria Pluschnik.

She was last seen on the evening of February 7th when she left Schazenfeld in her vehicle.

It appears her vehicle became stuck in a snow drift at the intersection of Road 22 West and Road 8 North in the RM of Stanley, and had been there for some time.

The RCMP investigation began on Feburary 9th and on February 10th snowmobiles and the RCMP K-9 unit became involved searching the nearby fields and tree lines.

On Monday afternoon, February 11 a volunteer searcher located the human remains in a secluded ravine near Schanzenfeld.

RCMP Media Relations Officer Julie Courchaine says there are no signs of foul play, but are awaiting the results of the autopsy.

Courchaine urges residents to respect the privacy of the family at this time.
