Search for missing Red Deer County woman reaches tragic end

The search for a missing Red Deer County woman reached a tragic end last Friday.

The search for a missing Red Deer County woman reached a tragic end last Friday, when 68-year-old Roze Burk’s lifeless body was found near Evansburg.

Burk went missing on March 12, and was last seen at the Deer Park Co-op in Red Deer. Her dog Jewel, who went missing with her, was found alive and transported to a shelter. Plans were in place to have Jewel returned to Burk’s family on Monday.

Administrators behind a Facebook page dedicated to finding Burk said details surrounding her disappearance were scarce. Evansburg RCMP on Tuesday, however, said Burk’s vehicle may have become stuck, at which point Burk may have left it in an attempt to seek help.

The remote area in which her vehicle was found, is “not frequented by travellers,” a police statement read.

A Facebook posting expressed appreciation for those who helped in the search for Burk.

“The family would like to send out huge thank yous to all of the wonderful volunteers that helped at our searches. We definitely extend our deep appreciation and thanks to all you Facebookers who have been sharing and keeping your eyes peeled.

“We did our best, but didn’t quite reach her in time.”
