The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office has confirmed a body found Thursday in Woodway is that of a woman who went missing earlier this week.

The cause and manner of Amy Kennelly’s death are pending further investigation, the medical examiner said Friday.

Kennelly, 48, was reported missing by her family Wednesday afternoon. Two days before that, police found her car deserted after it hit a home’s garage door in the 11000 block of Algonquin Road, Edmonds police Sgt. Shane Hawley said.

Her body was found Thursday morning in a wooded area about 100 yards from where the car crashed, police said.

Officers had earlier found clothing in a nearby backyard that they believe may have belonged to Kennelly, Hawley said.

Edmonds police say foul play is not suspected, and there is no danger to the public.

“It looks like she got into the woods on her own accord,” Hawley said.
