Jody Frocklage went missing while canoeing on Kalum Lake December 21

The body of a 43-year-old Jody Frocklage who was reported missing on December 21st, 2014 has now been recovered, reported Terrace RCMP May 26.

Ralston and Associates, a non-profit, underwater search and recovery group from Idaho, USA, were assisting the family with continued search efforts on Kalum Lake May 25 when the body of the woman was located, said police.

Terrace RCMP was notified and Terrace Search and Rescue was called to provide assistance with recovery of the body, said police.

Police find no evidence of foul play and will be assisting the coroner in further investigation, said police.

Earlier this year, Simonne Reiter, sister of Jody Frocklage, started a drive to bring the Ralstons here to search for her sister, asking people to donate either by mailing a cheque to the Knights of Columbus Charitable Foundation or donating on its website.

On Dec. 21, 2014 at 9 p.m. police received a report about that Frocklage was missing and officers found her truck that evening parked at the Kalum Lake boat launch, said police at that time.

Search and rescue found her canoe on Kalum Lake in the early morning hours of Dec. 22.

Search efforts included using a local helicopter, a police service dog and the assistance of members of Terrace Search and Rescue.

The search was called off Dec. 24 when all search options had been exhausted.
