Pregnant mom reported missing weeks ago found dead in national forest

A pregnant woman last seen walking from mother’s house in northern Minnesota earlier this month was found dead in a national park on Saturday.

ABC reports that authorities found the body of the body of 27-year-old Kara Blevins, of Akeley, on Saturday at around 8:15 p.m. at the Chippewa National Forest in Casa County, in a wooded area. Sheriff Tom Burch of the Cass County Sheriff’s Office stated that her body was transported to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office, where the official cause of death will be determined.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Blevins was last seen walking down Howard Road, wearing a winter coat and a scarf, at around 5 p.m.  on February 5.  According to a Facebook post, Blevins was walking from her mother’s house when she disappeared. Friends and family stated they were worried for her safety.

“She is pregnant, and we know that something is not right. Last place seen was leaving her mothers house in Akeley MN on Friday,” friend Candace Reams said on Facebook shortly after Blevins’ disappearance. “She has been reported missing as of Monday the 5th and there has been no record or trace of where she could be. We are all scared and worried. If ANYONE has seen her, knows where she could be or has any information as to who she may be with we would really appreciate it.”

The story is still developing. Check back with CrimeOnline as additional details become available.
