Sheriff Richard J. Devlin, Jr. regrets to report that Margaret Thayer was located deceased this morning on her property behind her residence in an area where snow drifts were previously several feet deep.

Deputies were at the residence rechecking areas that have been previously searched by foot and K-9’s.

 Thayer was last seen on March 1, 2018, the day before a major snow storm hit the area, but was not reported missing until March 6, 2018. Environmental conditions have hampered the search effort  Coroner Mike Fox has been assigned the case. Foul play is not suspected at this time, the investigation is continuing.
