The melting snow reveals a lot of things that were hidden. But a woman missing since late December? That's what happened when a Union Pacific rail employee discovered the body of Jeanne Pike near the railroad tracks in Winthrop Harbor this morning. The 60-year-old Pike was reported missing on Dec. 21. At the time she was reported missing, police searched the area, which was covered in snow, but found no trace of her. The Union Pacific employee found her under a tree, partially covered in snow. An autopsy will be performed to determine the cause of Pike's death.
