An Alert Bay woman who was reported missing a few days ago has been found deceased.
Tamika Mountain, 18, was last seen walking in a grassy and forested area on Cormorant Island on March 25, shortly after returning home from work at around 4:45 p.m.
Family members have informed CHEK News that searchers located her body at around 11 a.m. Sunday near a water tower on the island.
Mountain’s disappearance sparked a large effort that saw rescuers from multiple agencies search all of Cormorant Island.
The family says they are thankful for everyone’s help.
CHEK News has reached out to Alert Bay RCMP for further information.
