Police in central Alberta have called off the search for an Edmonton woman reported missing over the weekend, days after her vehicle was found.

Rocky Mountain House RCMP said Friday that the aerial search for Anina Hundsdoerfer, 32, had been called off.

The change came after RCMP switched to searching only by air, after officers carried out an extensive ground search in the area surrounding the location where Hundsdoerfer’s vehicle had been found.

Edmonton police confirmed Wednesday that Hundsdoerfer’s car had been found alongside Highway 734 Tuesday afternoon by Alberta Fish and Wildlife officers.

The woman was reported missing Sunday by her roommate – her last known location is believed to be at the office where she works, located near 99 Avenue and 108 Street the day before.

Hundsdoerfer is described as:

  • Caucasian
  • About 175 cm (5’9”) tall
  • About 72.5 kg (160 lbs)
  • Brown, shoulder-length hair
  • Blue eyes

It’s believed she could have been wearing a burgundy, long winter coat, dark form-fitting pants and glasses.

Anyone with information that could help police in their investigation is asked to call the Edmonton Police Service non-emergency line at 780-423-4567 or #377 on a mobile phone.
