Lyons’s body has since been identified by the New Hampshire Medical Examiner, New Hampshire State Police said in a statement.

“The New Hampshire State Police would like to thank the public for providing information that led to its discovery, and our public safety partners who contributed to several coordinated searches,” the statement read.

The day Lyons went missing, she told her friend Kristin Haralabatos that she would visit her boyfriend in Ossipee and pick up her dog, a German Shepherd, for a walk, WBZ reported.

“She wanted to get her dog, Flossy,” said Haralabatos.

“And when she left, she told the man she was going to Google’s woods or trails there.”

She added, “Through my heart I just pray that she is well, but this is very different from her.”

Lyon was later seen walking along the shore of Lake Ossipee as the ice deteriorated on the warm day, outlets reported.

‘She did exactly what we thought she was doing: walk along the edge of this pressure ridge, and then at some point she went through the ice or on the edge maybe where the Bear River meets Lake Ossipee,’ Fish and Game Captain Michael Eastman told WMUR.

“I’d say she probably got into the water there.”

Family members have since flown in from Ireland – where Lyons originally came from Ireland, WMUR reported.

‘It’s a sad situation. Our hearts go out to the family. They certainly traveled a long distance to get here. It’s sad, ”said Eastman.
