Dawn Carlson has been missing from Minnesota since 2013 and police believe they have located her body.
The Kittson County Sheriff Steve Porter told Valley News Live that they found a 2001 Mercury Sable on May 25, 2017 at the bottom of a river near Lake Bronson State Park. Inside was a body, along with a purse with identification inside.
Dawn Carlson, 43, went missing on October 2, 2013 on her way to an appointment. She was last seen in her car in Karlstad, about 20 miles from her home.
The Find Dawn Carlson Facebook page posted that the sheriff was reopening the case in April. PageOnePublications reported on April 14, 2017, “Deputy Sheriff Mark Wilwant will be physically conducting these water searches and Kittson County Sheriff Steve Porter will be coordinating them.”
The authorities do not know if there is foul play or it was an accident, but her family stated shortly after she left that she had told them she wanted to move away. The body will be taken to the medical examiner for positive identification.
