BREAKING: Body found at LA hotel may be missing local woman

Police in Los Angeles say a body found at the hotel where a young Vancouver woman was last seen more than three weeks ago.

Elisa Lam, 21, disappeared from the Cecil Hotel in downtown LA Jan. 31.

LAPD officer Sarah Faden says police were called to the hotel this morning after workers made a grisly discovery while investigating complaints of reduced water pressure.

“A maintenance worker went up on top of the roof to the water tanks where there was discovered a female listed in her 20s inside the tank.”

Faden says investigators will work to confirm her identity after they remove the body from the tank.

She adds that while detectives have been in contact with Lam’s family, they have no idea if this body has any connection with her disappearance.
