The body of 27-year-old Kara Blevins was found Saturday not far from her hometown of Akeley.

Cass County Sheriff Tom Burch says there was "no indication at the scene of any crime."

The Star Tribune reports that preliminary autopsy results could provide more information about how she died.

Blevins was last seen Feb. 2 walking along a road in Akeley. Authorities were concerned because of below-freezing temperatures, she was pregnant and she didn't have a phone, car or money. Her body was found Saturday after someone walking a dog saw some human tracks.
