Yellowstone National Park officials had initiated a search throughout the park this week for Kassandra Wieferich, a park concession employee who reportedly missed several shifts at work. She also failed to meet family members the previous afternoon as planned.

After a brief search throughout the Old Faithful Lodge area, the 21-year-old's body was discovered not far from where she was last seen. Wiefrich is from Twin Bridges, Montana.
Details surrounding her discovery were withheld until yesterday afternoon to allow for family to be notified. Earlier this month, another park employee was found dead after he was swept down the Yellowstone River, while floating it with friends. Also this month, a visitor fell 550 feet to her death near the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. Additional details from this new incident remain limited at this time.
