NEW ROADS, La. (AP) - Authorities found the body of a 66-year-old woman in the False River after she disappeared Thursday night from a New Roads nursing home.

Pointe Coupee Parish Sheriff Bud Torres tells The Advocate (https://bit.ly/1hTkRux ) deputies responded to the oxbow lake near Lakeview Manor nursing home shortly before 4 p.m. Sunday after a 911 caller reported finding what looked like a body floating in river.

Torres say a Pointe Coupee Fire District 5 rescue specialist waded out into the water and retrieved the body authorities identified as Isla Lazare pending an autopsy. The sheriff says Lazare disappeared Thursday night while taking a smoke break.
