SALT LAKE CITY — Kelly Glover, the Utah woman who went missing this week on a Florida business trip, was found dead Saturday, family members announced on Facebook.

Glover, 37, was last seen on Wednesday night at her hotel after traveling to Florida on Tuesday. She had planned to stay there for the week.

Glover's husband, Adam Bremer, said she went to dinner with a friend who was staying with her on Wednesday night. The two women returned to the hotel at 10:30 p.m. and the friend went to sleep. He said that she woke up at 4 a.m. and saw that Glover was gone, but her phone and wallet were still in the room and the door was slightly open.

Bremer said he first knew something was wrong when he hadn't heard anything from Glover in the morning.

"She's pretty responsive," he said. "I usually get up before her and I send her the first message in the morning and not one morning has gone by where I haven't heard from her by 9 o'clock."

Bremer arrived in Fort Lauderdale on Friday morning to help with the search.

Regan Glover and then Bremer posted the news of Kelly's death on Facebook, and Kelly's cousin Ryan Glover confirmed her death to KSL. Regan Glover said Kelly's body was found about 10 a.m. MT, 12 p.m. local time.

Bremer said there is footage that shows Glover going down the hotel stairs at 2 a.m. to an exit that leads out to open land and water. She was wearing pajamas, a light sweater and socks.

"As far as I know there is no evidence that she's left the hotel," said Ryan Glover on Friday.

Fort Lauderdale had been searching with a dive team, helicopter and police dogs.

"We're just trying to take it one hour at a time, there's no script for this, you can't prepare for this," said Bremer on Friday.

Ryan Glover told KSL Kelly was an "experienced traveler" and a "very independent person."

More information about the finding and the circumstances of Glover's death was not immediately available.
