Body believed to be missing Fort Collins woman found Wednesday

Christine Cummings, 32, was reported missing on New Year's Day. Her Jeep was found parked in the Pingree Park area on Jan. 6.

LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. — Law enforcement said a body was found Wednesday while they were searching for a missing Fort Collins woman. The body, believed to be Christine Cummings', was found in the Pingree Park area after a utility worker spotted her Jeep Wednesday morning at the Emmaline Lake trailhead. 

The trailhead is near the CSU Mountain Campus. It is about an hour and 45 minute drive from Fort Collins.

Cummings, 32, was reported missing by a relative on New Year’s Day, according to Fort Collins Police Services (FCPS). She had not been heard from for several days, and her last known location was her home in Fort Collins on Dec. 29.

Family members told police that she may have gone hiking, and staff at two places she’s known to frequent – Rocky Mountain and Yellowstone National Parks – were told to be on the lookout.
