"The body at this time is unconfirmed to be that of Chelsea Cardno, who went missing upstream from that location on June 14, which resulted in an intensive search by the RCMP and the Central Okanagan Search and Rescue," according to the press release.

She was last seen leaving her home with her dog JJ. She was heading to the park and her white BMW was later found parked at the north end of Pasadena Road.

Police are asking the public to avoid the area and the RCMP has notified Cardno's family.

The Kelowna RCMP General Investigative Support Team is working with the British Columbia Coroners Service who have control of this investigation.

Cardno's family issued a statement this morning, June 25.

"It is with very heavy hearts that we have to announce that we have found our sweet Chelsea," wrote Cardno's mother Diane, in a Facebook post.

"I need to take this time to thank everyone for the outpouring of love and support over the last 11 days. To all those that came out to help us search, the tireless hours out combing through the brush, walking hours along the Greenway, we left no stone unturned. The community came together to bring my sweet pea home, and I will be forever grateful."

Her German shepherd JJ is still missing, she wrote.
