The search is focused on the dense forest area along Highway 734 (Trunk Road) between Rocky Mountain House and Nordegg where the missing woman’s 2005 Toyota Echo was located. Despite the terrain, snow accumulation and weather conditions, RCMP dog teams were able to cover a significant amount of ground, but did not find any further evidence of the missing woman. Police will search the area further weather permitting.
“We continue to ask anyone who may have seen Anina Hundsdoerfer or her 2005 Toyota Echo along the highway, or at some other location, to please contact police and let us know the details,” says Sgt. Neil Zurawell with the EPS Missing Persons Unit. “Police, family and friends are all concerned for her safety and welfare, and would like to locate her as soon as possible.”
The circumstances leading to Hundsdoerfer’s disappearance have not yet been determined. Her disappearance is out of character, and as a result, there are concerns for her well-being.
Anina Hundsdoerfer, 32, is described as Caucasian, approximately 5’9” tall, weighing approximately 160 lbs., with brown shoulder length hair, and blue eyes. She may be wearing dark form-fitting pants, and eye glasses. Hundsdoerfer operates a 2005 Toyota Echo, medium blue, two-door, with Alberta licence plate HUZ 936.
Anina Hundsdoerfer was reported missing to the EPS by her roommate on Sunday, March 23, 2014.
