Authorities on Friday found the body of Danielle Jelinek, ending a six-month search for the Cottage Grove native.

Chisago County Sheriff Rick Duncan said Friday evening that local and state law enforcement located a female body in a swamp a few hundred yards from the home of Jelinek's ex-boyfriend, Aaron Schnagl. Authorities believe he was the last to see her before she disappeared Dec. 8 in Chisago Lakes Township, north of Washington County.
