Hardy’s loved ones had not heard from her since June 16, and her mother reported her missing on June 18. She left her “beloved” cat and other important personal belongings, including cancer medication, at home, according to a lost person post from the Houlton Police Department.
Maine State Police began an investigation that led them to Harvey Siding Road, where Maine game wardens found Hardy’s body in a wooded area.
“Evidence Response Team members and Detectives will continue to investigate at several scenes,” Maine State Police said in a Facebook post.
The Chief Medical Examiner’s Officer in Augusta will perform an autopsy to determine Hardy’s cause and manner of death.
Hardy’s Facebook page shows she and Schnackenberg started dating in February 2022.
Schnackenberg made his initial court appearance Tuesday after his Monday arrest.
Hardy was reported missing on June 18 by her mother because she had not heard from her for several days, police said. Hardy left her vehicle and her beloved pets behind, according to a missing flier posted by her family.
Maine State Police Troop F, Computer Crimes Unit, Maine Warden Service and Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit North have been searching for Hardy since she was reported missing.
During the search for Hardy, a body was discovered in a wooded area near Harvey Siding Road in Monticello over the weekend.
The body will be transported to the state medical examiner’s office in Augusta, where an autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of death and confirm identity.
Schnackenberg’s bail hearing has not been scheduled, but according to Maine law, it must be scheduled within five days.
