Missing Iqaluit woman found dead and frozen

Woman dies after walk on the land


Iqaluit searchers have found the lifeless body of Lindsay Hudson, 37, an Iqaluit woman reported missing since Dec. 11.

Police say the Nunavut coroner’s office has ordered an autopsy, but police do not suspect that her death was caused by the actions of another person.

Hudson, an employee of the Government of Nunavut’s human resources department, was last seen at around noon Dec. 11, when she set out from her housing unit in Iqaluit for a walk to Apex with her three dogs.

Later on Dec. 11, Hudson’s roommate contacted police to report that Hudson had gone missing. The RCMP, the Iqaluit search and rescue group, and the emergency measures organization then began a search using snowmobiles.

Temperatures on the evening of Dec. 11 had sunk to nearly -25 C, with winds gusting to more than 50 km/h.

Searchers found her frozen body Dec. 12, at about 3:00 p.m. Two of her dogs waited by her side.
