PUEBLO, Colo. — The body of a woman who was reported missing earlier this week was found in a Pueblo lake Thursday morning.

Juanita Hernandez, 57, had not been in contact with her family since Tuesday. Police found her van in the parking lot of Runyon Lake around 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Around 8:45 a.m. Thursday, police found a body in the water just off a dock in the south side of the lake. They recovered the body and took it to the coroner, who identified it as Hernandez.

An autopsy will be performed to determine how Hernandez died.
