A 36-year-old woman from Jasper was reported missing on Wednesday around 10 a.m. after she didn’t report to work. This was out of character for her, and there was concern for her well-being, RCMP said in a Friday news release. Meantime, police got a report about a damaged vehicle off Maligne Lake Road between Medicine Lake and Maligne Lake on Thursday, while the missing person investigation was underway.

Police, the fire department, Parks Canada, and paramedics went to the vehicle, and it seemed that the car had rolled over and caught on fire, and one deceased person was inside. The fire was out when emergency workers got there.

RCMP are still investigating the fatality.

No other information was released and no other updates are expected.
