KAMLOOPS - The B.C. Coroners Service confirmed a body was found in Kamloops Lake last weekend and police say foul play has been ruled out as a cause of death.

Cpl. Dave Tyreman, a spokesperson for the RCMP, says hikers found the body of a 50-year-old Kamloops woman along the edge of the water near Cooney Bay and the Canadian National Railway tunnel on Sunday, April 19.

The coroners service has identified the woman as Tracey Dawn Dallyn, who had not been seen since April 13 and had been reported missing earlier in the weekend.

It was unclear at the time what had caused the death and as a result investigators from the Southeast Major Unit in Kelowna attended the scene. The body was transported to Kamloops and an autopsy was performed April 21.

“An autopsy was performed at Royal Inland Hospital and the results of that autopsy have determined that no foul play was involved in this woman’s death,” Tyreman said in a release.

The RCMP turned the investigation over to the coroners service.
