Penticton RCMP confirms that the body of 89-year-old Doreen Abbott has been discovered.
The senior has been missing for the past 10 days.
Abbott left her home on the evening of Jan. 27 to visit a friend, but she did not arrive.
Her car was found a couple of days later on Greyback Mountain Road.
RCMP believes Abbott turned up the road by mistake, and her car got stuck in the snow.
Late Sunday afternoon, RCMP issued a news release stating that Abbott’s body had been located.
Police are continuing to investigate, but criminality is not suspected.
