(KRON) — A body found near Bay Farm Island Bridge in Alameda Tuesday has been confirmed as that of a woman who went missing Saturday, the Alameda Police Department said. No foul play is suspected in the woman’s death, according to Alameda PD.
Police in Alameda had been investigating the disappearance of 52-year-old Desiree “Lisa” Huey Saturday who disappeared after telling a family member she planned to go for a short walk. Huey had last been seen at her residence in the 2200 block of San Antonio Avenue just after 8 a.m. Saturday.
On Tuesday, police responded to a call at 12:55 p.m. about a possible person in the water near the base of the Bay Farm Bridge. Responding officers confirmed the person was dead.
“This is devastating news for her family, friends, and our community,” said Alameda police in a statement. “We ask for everyone to respect the family’s privacy during this difficult time.”
An Alameda PD representative said the department worked with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office Coroner’s Bureau on recovery efforts.
