The body of a missing woman was found in Lake County Wednesday.

At about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, the Lake County Sheriff's Office located the body of Janeen Bauer Peters, 57, about 500 yards from her vehicle near County Highway 2 and south of Highway 1.

Peters was last seen on Nov. 11.

On Tuesday, the Duluth Township Police requested help from Lake County Sheriff’s Office in locating Peters’ missing vehicle. The vehicle was found abandoned and locked in an “area  where it wasn’t easily noticed,” the Sheriff’s office said in a news release Wednesday.

The vehicle was covered in snow and there was no fresh tracks near it, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputies conducted a search of the area but decided dogs were needed for the search.

The cause of death is unknown and the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office is conducting an autopsy.
