NORTH  CONWAY – A homicide prosecutor with the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office confirmed this evening that the body of a missing Portland woman was recovered this afternoon from a pond at the Cranmore Mountain Resort in North Conway.

During a brief press conference, Assistant Attorney General Jane Young told reporters that the body of 20-year-old Krista Dittmeyer was recovered today from Duck Pond.

“We are treating this as a suspicious death,” Young said.

Young said the manner and cause of the young woman’s death should become clearer tomorrow after an autopsy by the state’s deputy medical examiner.

There was no announcement from Young regarding suspects or whether an arrest will be made.

Young urged the public to contact the Conway, N.H., Police Department at (603) 356-5715 if they have information regarding Dittmeyer’s whereabouts last Friday night. Dittmeyer called her mother around 8 p.m. that night. It was the last time she had contact with relatives or friends.

Police found Dittmeyer’s car, a black Nissan Sentra, in a parking lot at Cranmore Mountain Resort around 6:30 a.m. Saturday. The car’s engine was running, its emergency flashers were on and Dittmeyer’s 14-month-old daughter, Aliyah, was in the rear seat.

The toddler, who was not harmed, is in the care of relatives. Dittmeyer’s family lives in Bridgton, Maine.
