However, it has been confirmed by the RCMP that the vehicle located is the black 2003 Saturn Ion that the Cranbrook RCMP have been looking for since Friday, June 17 and that its driver, described as an 86-year-old female, was found deceased at the scene.

Due to the position of the car, identification of the driver was difficult. RCMP confirmed it was Barbara Webb, reported missing on June 17.
