CHERRY CREEK, N.Y. (WIVB) — Parties of searchers and police located a body of a woman in a wooded area in Chautauqua County Wednesday.
Officials say the body was in a heavily wooded area Wednesday afternoon off Aldrich Road in Cherry Creek. After police located the body, they say it was sent to the Erie County Medical Center for an autopsy.
Police say they’re waiting on a positive identification, but suggest they believe the body is that of 56-year-old missing woman Karen Christian. They did not say they suspect foul play.
Christian was reported as missing on June 17, and a hunt for her has been underway since then.
News 4 will post the results of the autopsy in this story when they become available.
