Police are investigating after a woman's body was found in the snow outside a home in Northfield.

Officials were called to the 400 block of East Third Street around 3:10 p.m. Sunday, where they found the body of 31-year-old Tiffany Smith, Northfield police said in a news release Monday.

Police say the body had been there for at least a day. Police Chief Monte Nelson told the Star Tribune Smith didn't live at the address where she was found.

Smith had been missing since Jan. 1. A friend reported she was upset and hadn't returned home that morning, the release says. Friends, family and police, along with United Legacy, had been aiding in search efforts.
