AKELEY — Authorities said they doubt foul play was a factor in the death of a pregnant woman who was missing for more than two weeks before her body was found in the Chippewa National Forest.

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

Cass County Sheriff Tom Burch said there was “no indication at the scene of any crime.”

Preliminary autopsy results could provide more information about how she died.

Blevins was last seen Feb. 2 walking along an Akeley road.

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.
