The BC Coroner’s Service confirms a body recovered from the Columbia River near the Trail airport last month was that of a missing Slocan Park woman.

Elena Popoff, 64, was last seen in the Trail area on April 15. RCMP said she had some appointments there but never returned home, which was unusual as she normally stayed in contact with friends and family.

Her body was found three days later in a shallow shore area of the river about one kilometer from the airport. A vehicle was located nearby.

Foul plan has been ruled out. The coroner is still investigating.
