The body of a woman who went missing in April has been found and identified as 46-year-old Tanis Larson of Princeton. 

Larson was reported missing on April 28, after her husband and two kids returned from a movie and found that she had left without taking any of her belongings, except a coffee thermos. 

"That made me think that she was coming home," Larson's husband, Gene Larson told the Union-Times

Her body was discovered by a canoeist in the Rum River on May 20, more than three weeks after she disappeared.

Larson told the Union-Times that he didn't want to believe that the body found was his wife until a medical examiner described a ring she was wearing with the word "faith" inscribed on it. 

There is a GoFundMe for the family that has so far raised just over $4,000. 

Larson was laid to rest last weekend.
