Calgary police have confirmed that a body found in the city's northeast on Thursday was missing woman Shianne Kim Thom.
The 21-year-old hadn't been seen since she left her Silver Springs home on Dec. 18 and police said she had a condition that required medication.
Her body was found partially covered by snow in the 1200 block of Maitland Drive N.E. around 11:30 a.m.
An autopsy is scheduled for Jan. 8 and an update on the cause of death will be provided at that time.
