Missing woman found dead at Squaw

Staff reports

Squaw Valley Ski Patrol this morning located the remains of a Tahoe City woman who had been missing since Thursday when she was skiing with friends.

The body of Sherry Elizabeth “Bitsy” Roessler, 25, was located just before 7 a.m. on Saturday in some trees near the Squaw Creek chair lift. Placer County sheriff’s investigators said it appears Roessler collided with a tree and succumbed to her injuries.

Roessler’s body was transported to Auburn where the coroner’s office will do an autopsy to determine her exact cause of death.

She was reported missing by friends on Friday at 12:50 p.m. Placer County sheriff’s officers, ski patrol and Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue searched for Roessler Friday and resumed the search Saturday morning, when she was found.
