The RCMP say in a statement the Coroners Service has been notified.

The statement says the RCMP has notified the family of Chelsea Cordno to offer available supports, but the identity of the body has yet to be confirmed.

Cordno, 31, and her dog were reported missing earlier this month after she planned to walk the Mission Greenway bordering Mission Creek, which had been raging due to high waters, but she never returned.

Police says her vehicle was found parked near the greenway but there was no sign of Cordno or her German shepherd JJ.

Search and rescue crews, backed by an RCMP helicopter and an RCMP forensic identification team, scoured the area for several days.
