The body was found down a private road, on the banks of the Blue River around 1 p.m. Friday.

At a 3 p.m. news conference, Silverthorne Police confirmed it was that of a woman, but didn't give any other information to identify the body. They say they are looking for other clues, but did not say if there is any evidence of foul play.

Police say Stephanie Roller Bruner had been missing since Monday night. Her husband, Dale Bruner, reported her missing Tuesday morning.

Stephanie's brother, Aaron Roller, says his sister was going through a rough patch in her marriage with Dale Bruner at the time. Dale Bruner says she went for a walk to clear her head around 10 p.m. Monday night, taking only her cell phone, but never returned.

Volunteers and law enforcement have been looking for her ever since.

About 50 volunteer searchers met at the Silverthorne Town Pavilion on Friday morning and received the last known image of Stephanie alive - a surveillance photo of her leaving work on Monday - then began searching.

Early Friday, police said they did not know if Stephanie Roller Bruner took off on her own, or if something happened to her.

The family launched a Facebook page called "Find Stephanie" to help locate her. It had 443 members as of Friday afternoon.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation has sent one investigator to Silverthorne to assist in the case.
