Body of missing Sanborn woman found Friday

The body of a missing Sanborn woman was found Friday afternoon west of Sanborn, along the Cottonwood River in Charlestown Township of Redwood County.

The Redwood County Sheriff’s Office reported it was contacted at 2:15 p.m. Friday, regarding a deceased person being found near the river.

The body was taken to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s office for an autopsy. The M.E.’s office reported Saturday the body had been identified as that of 81-year-old Jeanine Jackson of Sanborn.

Jackson had been missing since Sept. 20, after she had reportedly taken her dog for a walk. The dog was found alive last week and was returned to family members.

No update has been given on the cause of death.
