An exhaustive search for a local woman who went missing May 24 has come to a very sad end, according to BC RCMP.

Neva Evdokimoff, 48, was last seen at Gyro Park in Trail, and Search and Rescue efforts including boats, quads, helicopters, a plane, and foot searches revealed nothing (for earlier coverage, click here ).
