A missing Zephyr Cove woman’s body was found on Saturday near Inspiration Point at Lake Tahoe.

Carolyn Batchelor was last seen on Feb. 17. Her vehicle was found two days later near Emerald Bay, covered in a foot of snow.

Searchers from El Dorado and Douglas counties looked around Inspiration Point for a week starting Feb. 20.

The search area consists of steep and rugged terrain and was covered by 1-2 feet of fresh snow from the Feb. 18 storm.

On Saturday, searchers found Batchelor’s body partly buried in snow.

Her death was not considered suspicious, according to the sheriff’s office.

What happened to her is still under investigation, authorities said.
