ST. GEORGE, Utah, Aug. 9, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — The St. George Police Department has released the name of a woman whose body was found Saturday by a man walking near the Santa Clara River.
The body is that of 32-year-old Amy Crawford, of St. George, who has been missing since June 22. Her identity was confirmed by the Medical Examiner’s Office.
“Our agency would like to express our condolences to her family and friends,” a post on the St. George Police Facebook page said. “This is an ongoing investigation and we are not able to release any other information at this time.”
In a missing-person news release issued on July 27, the police department said the disappearance was out of character for Crawford, who would not normally be out of contact with her 4-year-old daughter.
The body was found at about 7:30 a.m. Saturday by a man who alerted police. They responded to the scene, near 1545 S. Dixie Drive.
In a news release issued Saturday, St. George Police officials said they planned to use service dogs to locate any additional evidence, and that they believed the body might have been washed downstream.
