BREAKING: Body of Missing Wyoming Woman Found Tuesday
Authorities on Tuesday found the body of a Green River woman who was reported missing last month, according to the Sublette County Sheriff's Office.
Sgt. Travis Bingham said that the body of 28-year-old Aubree Corona was found two days after authorities found the vehicle in which she was last seen. Search and rescue members discovered her body while searching the area where the vehicle was located.
No foul play is suspected in Corona's death. An autopsy has been scheduled.
Corona was last seen July 13 during a camping trip with friends in the New Fork Lakes area. An extensive search of the area proved fruitless and was suspended July 17.
In a statement Wednesday, Bingham said searchers undertook a new mission after the vehicle in which she was last seen, a dark grey 2005 Chevrolet Avalanche, was found over the weekend.
That pickup truck was located on a remote, non-traveled road in Fremont County in the Leeds Creek area, Bingham said. The Avalanche had half a tank of gas remaining when it was found, but it was inoperable to the point that it would not have been able to be restarted.
Detectives also found a missing dirt bike, which was last seen in the bed of the pickup when Corona was last sighted. The bike was found on its side in the bed of the pickup truck.
On Monday, searchers started covering the area where the truck was found. Then, on Tuesday, Corona's body was found roughly 1.3 miles away from the truck.
"There was no cell phone coverage in that area making cell phone ping attempts ineffective," Bingham said. While no foul play is suspected, Bingham added, the cause of Corona's death is unknown.
"The Fremont County Sheriff's Office as well as the Sublette County Sheriff's Office wishes to extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of Miss Corona in this difficult time," Bingham concluded.
