City of Wylie officials said they recovered a body believed to be that of Almaz Gebremedhin, a woman missing since Oct. 2.
The city reports a search and rescue team notified authorities after discovering a van in the Muddy Creek Farms pond at 2500 McMillen Road in Wylie. A private search and recovery team from Illinois found the van using sonar. A dive team discovered the body inside the van.

Police said they’re waiting on an autopsy to confirm whether the body is Gebremedhin.
“It’s very tough,” family friend Feyera Milkessa said. “You know the family not knowing, not having a clue for five plus weeks since she went missing.”

Gebremedhin was last seen wearing scrubs and heading to work at her home at 5 a.m., Oct. 2. Police said the van was found near Gebremedhin’s place of employment.
