The B.C. Coroners Service has confirmed that the body of a missing 30yearold Port Alberni woman has been found.
The body was discovered Saturday by a passerby in a wooded area near the missing woman's Beaver Creek home.
The woman was identified as Stephanie Nicole Ewing, said Matt Brown, regional coroner for Vancouver Island.
RCMP Cpl. Jen Allan said no foul play was involved.
Ewing was last seen by a friend in the late afternoon on Sept. 25.
A recent arrival from Ontario, she was in the process of moving to a different location in Port Alberni when she disappeared.
Family members in Ontario contacted the RCMP when Ewing failed to call them.
