LOGANSPORT, La. (AP) - A body has been discovered in a small pond in Logansport.

DeSoto Parish Sheriff Rodney Arbuckle tells KTBS-TV (https://bit.ly/1RZn0Xa ) Friday that the body is that of a woman but an identification has not been made.

The sheriff’s office’s crime scene investigators are on the scene. Arbuckle says the case will be treated as a homicide until further notice.

The discovery comes hours after the sheriff’s office issued an alert about a 21-year-old woman reported missing from Logansport. Miranda Whitton was last seen Monday.

Arbuckle says it’s too soon to know if there is a connection. It appears the body has been in the water for some time, contributing to its decomposition.
