The Elko County Sheriff’s Office said Monday that the body of Gabrielle “Britney” Lynn Ujlaky was found Wednesday in the Burner Basin area, which is between the city of Elko and the community of Spring Creek, about 15 miles away.

The sheriff’s office said investigators have been “working around the clock following up on leads and tips” but have not yet identified a suspect.

The Elko Daily Free Press reported that Ujlaky, of Spring Creek, was last seen on March 8 getting into a pickup truck.

Deputies said the incident happened at Spring Creek High School and involved a green Ford F-150 pickup.

It’s unclear who owned the truck and how Ujlaky knew the owner.
