At that time, police said Michayluk, who lived in Maidstone, had been collecting firewood with her father when their vehicle got stuck in snow.

They say Michayluk attempted to walk home, but became lost while walking in deep snow on a non-maintained grid road in white-out conditions.

Police say her body was located Friday approximately four kilometres from where she was last seen, and that it appears she died of exposure and hypothermia.
