DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Investigators have identified a woman who was found dead in the Des Moines River last week.

Authorities said Wednesday that dental records confirmed the woman as 19-year-old Ayawk Williams. Her body was discovered floating in the river March 17.

KCCI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Nh0NCC ) that Williams was reported missing Jan. 10 after she jumped from the Center Street pedestrian bridge, went through the ice and disappeared. Subsequent searches of the river didn’t turn up her body.
