A 29-year-old woman who was reported missing earlier this month was found dead Saturday along a rural walking trail in Marina, and police are calling the death a tragic accident.

Carie Hufford, a Marina resident whose nickname was “Lulu,” was found at about 11:15 a.m. Saturday off of a walking trail near Imjin Parkway and Abrams Drive, according to Marina police Cmdr. Bob Nolan.

Hufford’s body was located about 45 minutes into a coordinated search by Marina police, the Central Coast Citizen Emergency Response Team and about 200 volunteers who canvassed the area, Nolan said.

Her body was in an area covered with thick brush along a remote but well-traveled walking trail, police said.

The coroner’s office and the Peninsula Regional Violence and Narcotics Team joined police to investigate the scene where Hufford’s body was found, police said.

Her death is believed to be accidental, and foul play is not suspected, Nolan said.

Hufford’s husband had reported her missing on Jan. 17, police said.

Some volunteers who showed up to assist in the search had learned about her disappearance through social media, according to Nolan.
