The body of a 43-year-old Chilliwack woman reported missing last week was found in the Fraser River on Thanksgiving Sunday (Oct. 9).

Mounties were able to confirm Tuesday that her body had been recovered from the Fraser, near Mission.

“Although a full determination has yet to be made, RCMP do not believe that criminality was involved in the woman’s death,” said Sgt. Krista Vrolyk, spokesperson for Chilliwack RCMP in a release Oct. 11.

“The BC Coroners Service has been notified and is conducting a concurrent investigation into the woman’s death.”

Tammy White had been reported missing Oct. 3 after her family became concerned for her well-being, according to the RCMP, and one family member posted again over the weekend.

“Many thanks to emergency responders, Chilliwack RCMP, search crews, and anyone else who helped my family locate her,” a relative said in a public Facebook post. “We ask for space to grieve as a family.”
