The Riley County Police Department said Ashley Meiss’ body was located Saturday at 3 p.m. on the 300 block of North Park Road. The woman’s father told WIBW that she was found in a wooded area behind her apartment complex.

Meiss, 30, was reportedly last seen alive at 8:30 p.m. May 18 with two older men at the Rock House Sports Bar & Grill in Ogden. The newspaper reported that the military veteran was separated from her husband, the father of her two children.
Police told WIBW that Meiss was also spotted jogging the day of her disappearance. They said they’ll be sending a copy of their investigation to the county attorney but they don’t expect to provide additional updates to the public.
