PRICE — The body of a 29-year-old Price woman who disappeared early Sunday morning was found Tuesday.

Holly Martineau reportedly walked away from a residence in the Coves area of Price shortly after midnight Sunday.

She was believed to have walked to the general area of Wood Hill. The Price City Police Department received a report that she was missing at 2:30 p.m. Sunday

A group of Martineau’s family members and friends were looking for her Tuesday morning when her body was discovered by a family friend.

Officers from the Price City Police Department, deputies from the Carbon County Sheriff’s Office and a representative from the Utah State Medical Examiner Office investigated the scene.

Martineau’s body was recovered by the Price City Fire Department rescue squad.
