CARYVILLE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Investigators have found the body of a woman missing for several days.

On Wednesday afternoon, Captain Kevin Bygd from the Dunn County Sheriff's Office said deputies found the body of Kathleen Schlosser, 59, of the Durand area just before 1:30 p.m. Wednesday while on the Chippewa River in a boat. He said she was found about a mile west of the County Road H bridge. When asked if there were any suspicious circumstances surrounding Schlosser's death, Captain Bygd said that it is too early to tell.

Crews had started searching for Schlosser, 59, around 6 p.m. Monday. She was last seen northeast of Rock Falls around noon Monday. That’s where they say Schlosser’s car was found Monday night. The search first began in Caryville. Crews at the scene said Monday night that it was possible she went into the water for some reason.
