The body of a Wyoming woman who was on a mission trip in Nicaragua was found near the hotel where her team was staying.
Karen Colclough, 37, checked in with team leaders before leaving her group of six Friday to go for a run on the beach during the mission trip's free day. She did not show up for dinner that night and by Monday evening (three days later), pastor Paul Hayden of Presbyterian Church of Jackson Hole confirmed that her body had been found.
"About half an hour ago our team leader in Nicaragua was notified that they had found Karen's body. They found her a bit beyond the hotel boundaries where the team was staying during their debriefing time. Additional information has not been released," Hayden told Planet Jackson Hole. more >>
