The body of a missing Michigan, N.D., woman was found this evening, according to the Nelson County Sheriff’s Department.
Sheriff Kelly Janke said 41-year-old Pamila May Frazier, also known as Pamila May Pauslon, was found at 5:45 p.m. behind the Farmer’s Union Oil in Michigan. He said the location was about 150 yards from her house.
At this time, officials don’t suspect foul play. He said cold weather the night she disappeared likely was a factor in her death.
The Nelson County coroner retrieved Frazier’s body, and an autopsy will be conducted.
More than 60 people showed up a little after 5 p.m. Tuesday to help conduct the search for Frazier, who was last seen leaving her home early March 24. She was reported missing at about 11 a.m. Saturday.
“We had overwhelming support from the community tonight,” Janke said. The North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigations, Michigan Fire and Ambulance, Lakota Fire and Ambulance and the Petersburg Fire Department also assisted with the search.
