ORONO (WGME) -- The body of a 19-year-old Orono woman was discovered in a snowbank Saturday morning, but police said her death is not considered suspicious.

Around 11 a.m. Saturday, a person walking on Colburn Drive in Orono noticed the woman in the snow. She has been identified as Alexie Adams, 19, of Orono.

According to police, Adams was with friends Friday night, visiting several locations around Orono and likely became separated from her friends later in the evening.

While foul play is not suspected, police believe her death is alcohol related. The state medical examiner's office will determine the cause of death.

Orono police are continuing to investigate with help from Maine State Police detectives. The public is urged to help police determine Adams' activities Friday night into Saturday morning.
