A large search was launched after the 6 months pregnant 27 year old was reported missing on Feb. 5, having not been seen since three days earlier in her home town of Akeley, northern Minnesota.

She was eventually found, Burch said, after a dog-walker noticed some human tracks in a wooded area and informed police.

Blevins' body was then found by a sheriff's deputy.

More information about her death is expected to be revealed to investigators when preliminary autopsy results are returned in the coming days.

A YouCaring page has been set up to raise money for Blevins' daughters and funeral expenses.
