Body found near creek identified

POSTED December 4, 2009 11:43 p.m.
The remains of a missing Merced woman has been identified as the body found near Bear Creek in Merced on Tuesday morning.
The remains were identified as 50-year-old Tracy Veenstra, who also went by Tracy Sims, according to the Merced County Coroner’s Office. Veenstra had been missing since Nov. 14, when she was supposed to drive up to Modesto for a church conference. She never arrived and the car she was supposed to drive was still at her home, according to the Merced Police Department.
The body was found Tuesday morning by an inmate work crew who were clearing brush from the creek near the G Street area.
A cause of death has not been determined, pending toxicology results, which are expected in about six weeks, said sheriff spokesman Deputy Tom MacKenzie.
