A 21-year-old Yellowstone National Park concession worker from Twin Bridges was found dead in the park on Tuesday evening.

Kassandra “Kassie” Wieferich was reported missing on Tuesday after she missed several shifts at work and failed to meet a family member on Monday.

After a brief search in the Old Faithful Lodge area, the body of the woman was located not far from the point she was reportedly last seen by a fellow employee.

Details surrounding her discovery were withheld from the public until Wednesday afternoon to allow for notification of family members.

The incident remains under investigation by National Park Service rangers and special agents.
