The search for a woman who had been missing since Feb. 28 ended in tragedy as authorities announced that the body of Amanda Nenigar had been recovered.

Late Friday evening, the La Paz County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that the 27-year-old was located deceased near the California-Arizona border nearly a month after her reported disappearance.

Nenigar was last seen alive on Feb. 28 in Blythe, California, according to county officials. 

Back on March 12, authorities said that Nenigar’s vehicle was located in a remote area of La Paz County south of Cibola.

The circumstances leading up to her death and how she died were not immediately available.

“This is still an active investigation and a pending autopsy will determine the cause of death,” officials said.
