State police haven’t released any information about the possible cause of death. Kerry Young, from Dewitt New York, was last seen on Friday, but a missing persons report first went out on Monday.
On Monday, a trapper noticed her car parked on a remote road near Inlet. Inlet police checked the vehicle and confirmed that it belonged to Young.
More than fifty people scoured the woods on Tuesday and Wednesday. Rangers found Young’s body in a stand of trees between the Limekiln Cedar River Road and Fawn Lake.
The discovery came around 2pm about a mile from her vehicle, near the shore of Fawn Lake.
Her family was called and they confirmed that the body was that of Young.
DEC ranger captain John Streiff said Young was "off the beaten path for this time of year."
”Obviously it's off the snowmobile corridor and a little bit out of the way,” he added.
According to the Adirondack Daily Enterprise, Streiff declined to say whether foul play was involved. “It’s too early to tell,” he replied. “Let’s see what the investigation brings.”
The probe into Young’s death is being led by the state Bureau of Criminal Investigation in Ray Brook
