Police say the body of a northern Minnesota who was reported missing has been found.

Bridgid Novotny Miller, 43, was last seen in Keewatin, Minnesota – between Grand Rapids and Hibbing – at the Seventh Street trailhead walking west toward Nashwauk around 2 p.m. Saturday, officials said on Facebook.

Her body was found Tuesday evening in the woods about 75 feet off the trail, Northland's NewsCenter reports.

There are no signs of foul play; weather appears to have played a factor in her death. An official cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner.

Police had been concerned for Miller's welfare because of this week's frigid temperatures. Since she went missing, the mercury dropped significantly. Temperatures in Hibbing fell from a high of 25 degrees Saturday to a frigid high of minus 8 Sunday, according to Weather Underground.
