by

CHETEK, WI (WSAU) -  A woman was found dead Christmas Day in a wooded area about two miles west of Chetek, in Barron County. Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald says the 43-year-old was reported missing at around 10:00 p.m. Monday to Chetek police. Someone found her purse just before 2:00 p.m. Tuesday near County Highway D and 22nd Street. Officers searched the field and found the woman's body later that day.

Chetek Police say the woman's family called police, after she didn't show up on Christmas Eve. Police interviewed her family and friends and searched her apartment, and a missing person's report was filed.

An autopsy is being performed to determine her exact cause of death. The woman’s name has been withheld until relatives are notified.

The Barron County Sheriff's Department says there is no reason to believe anyone is in danger.
