Missing Alberni woman found dead

The body of Nicole Ewing, 30, was found on a Beaver Creek property on Saturday.

A 30-year-old Port Alberni woman who’d been missing since Sept. 25 has been found dead.

The body of Nicole Ewing, 30, was discovered by the resident of a Smith Road property in Beaver Creek on Saturday. No foul play is suspected in the death, RCMP Cpl. Jen Allan said.

Ewing was first reported missing to the RCMP by her mother in Ontario, who said it was unusual to not have heard from her.

The RCMP search was expanded on Thursday when a team from the Alberni Valley Rescue Squad was deployed to assist.

Ewing had recently moved to Port Alberni from Ontario. She was in the process of moving from Beaver Creek into town when she went missing. Ewing was under some emotional distress at the time, Allan said.

The investigation is now in the hands of the B.C. Coroner.
