Remains of missing Burnett County woman found in Minnesota

Nov. 29—LAKE LENA, Minn. — Human remains found Saturday in eastern Minnesota belong to a Burnett County woman who has been missing since September, Minnesota authorities confirmed Monday.

Ashley L. Miller Carlson, 33, of Grantsburg — about 50 miles northwest of Barron — was last seen on Sept. 24 and was considered missing and endangered.

On Saturday morning, searchers with the Christian Aid Ministries Search and Rescue Group found human remains in the town of Ogema near the Lake Lena community, land belonging to the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, the Pine County sheriff's office said.

The Midwest Medical Examiner's Office identified the remains as Carlson's.

Carlson's remains were found near the area in Pine County where her rental car was discovered on Sept. 24, partially submerged in Grace Lake.

Carlson's personal belongings were found inside the vehicle, law enforcement said. Wisconsin authorities didn't find Carlson at her home in the Siren-Grantsburg area; she has not been seen or heard from since Sept. 24.

Authorities said they believe Carlson didn't have a cell phone with her when she disappeared.

In the past two months, both sheriff's offices, the Minnesota bureau, the Wisconsin Department of Justice, the FBI and professional and volunteer groups have been involved in the search. Law enforcement have conducted “exhaustive” searches around Carlson's home and where her vehicle was found using aircraft, drones, sonar technology and divers, in addition to foot searches with “both live-find and Human Remains Detection K9s,” the Pine County and Burnett County sheriff's offices said in November. They conducted 32 search warrants and searched Grace Lake twice.

A Duluth-based investigation agency, Applied Professional Services, said in a news release that a tip line received more than 70 calls about Carlson's disappearance.

Carlson's family released a statement through the agency: “This is a sad day our family hoped would not come, and there are still many questions that need answers, but the important thing is we now have Ashley,” said Krista Struck, Carlson's mother. “Our family received incredible support from the community these past many weeks, and we thank them, the Christian Aid Ministries volunteer search and rescue team, the many involved law enforcement agencies and Applied Professional Services for helping locate Ashley.”

An online fundraiser for Carlson established after her disappearance raised more than $8,000 for search efforts.

The fundraiser described Carlson as a mother of four young children with a large extended family; Carlson grew up in the Polk County village of Frederic.

The Pine County sheriff's office is leading the investigation into Carlson's disappearance.
