On 11/17/14 at about 3:00pm The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office along with Douglas County Search and Rescue were in the area of South Hwy 67 @ MM89 (near rainbow falls) looking for a missing person. The missing person was associated with an abandoned vehicle that had been involved in a crash that Colorado State Patrol (CSP) had investigated at that location earlier in the day.
As a precaution, Douglas County Search and Rescue was dispatched to the location of the crash site to search the immediate area. During the search, a deceased adult female was located in the same general area.
Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is now conducting a death investigation. The preliminary investigation does not appear to be suspicious.
Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is no longer searching for a missing person at this time.
As with any death investigation the coroner will determine cause and manner of death and make a positive identification.
This remains and active and on-going investigation and no further information is being released at this time.
