OTSEGO – Deputies have found the body of the Otsego County woman who was reported missing from the town of Otsego earlier this month, according to the Otsego County Sheriff’s Office.

Margaret Thayer, 60, was last seen at her home on Parslow Road in Otsego on March 1, the day before a snow storm hit the area, and she was reported missing on March 6 after a friend went to plow her driveway. Thayer was reported as being a vulnerable adult with a medical condition and limited mobility.

Sheriff Richard Devlin says Thayer was found deceased on her property behind her home on Wednesday morning, in an area where snow drifts were previously several feet deep. He says deputies were searching areas that had already been searched by foot and with K-9s.

Devlin says that foul play is not suspected at this time, and the investigation is continuing.
