A 30-year-old York University student who went missing last month has been found dead in Niagara Region, police say.

Zabia Afzal went missing on May 10 after taking an Uber to Woodbine Beach from her workplace near Highway 400 and Major MacKenzie Drive West around 9:40 a.m.

She was last seen in the Ashbridges Bay area an hour later, and her shoes, sweater and other belongings were found on an outcropping of rocks near the water.

Friends and family helped police with the search for Afzal and launched pages on social media to provide information.

York Region police said they got a call from the Niagara Regional Police Service on Friday afternoon about a body that had been found in the water.

An autopsy confirmed the remains belonged to Afzal, and her death doesn’t appear to be suspicious.
