Law enforcement is still searching for a murder suspect after a woman’s body was found on Wednesday near Polson. 

Tyler Uhrich, 20, is wanted by authorities after Rozlyn Bluemel, 22, was found dead in a tribal wilderness area on the east short of Flathead Lake by Polson. 

Uhrich was still at large as of Friday afternoon. He is 6 feet and 4 inches tall and weighs about 220 pounds. He has brown hair and blue eyes. He might be wearing a red T-shirt or coat, according to a press release from Lake County. 

On Tuesday, Lake County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of a domestic disturbance around 9:30 p.m., according to Lake County Sheriff Don Bell.

Witnesses said a man and woman, identified as Uhrich and Bluemel, were arguing and a gunshot was heard. Two Bear Air’s helicopter assisted in search efforts but couldn’t find the two, Bell said. The search spanned all Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning. 

A child shared by the couple was found in a car near where the disturbance was reported. Both Uhrich and Bluemel are Polson residents.
