Body of missing Lewiston woman recovered from Snake River

Associated Press

LEWISTON – The body of a 19-year-old northern Idaho woman has been recovered from the Snake River.

Authorities said a Nez Perce County Sheriff’s Office dive team from Idaho on Friday recovered the body of Elizabeth Krueger of Lewiston in 25 feet of water.

Authorities told the Lewiston Tribune that an autopsy is planned, but authorities do not suspect foul play.

Authorities said Krueger was reported missing Thursday morning after going missing during a camping trip about 15 miles south of Asotin, Washington, along the Snake River.

Police said she was last seen about 3 a.m. when she left the campsite alone. She was reported missing later that morning when people in the group she was with awoke and couldn’t find her.
