Gilbert police find dead body in Riparian Preserve

GILBERT, Ariz. (AP) -- Police in Gilbert say a dead body has been found in a pond at the Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch.

They say the body was discovered late Friday afternoon and the park is closed while police investigate.

Police are unsure if the body is that of a woman who was reported missing and was last seen at the park.

They issued a statement earlier Friday asking for the public's help in locating 30-year-old Alyssa Romine.

Her vehicle was found abandoned at the park Thursday.

Police say Romine recently moved to Gilbert from Washington state and she has been suffering from depression due to recent health problems.
