Authorities in San Diego are investigating after lifeguards pulled the body of a woman out of Lake Murray on Sunday.

The San Diego Police Department said they were notified of the body just before 1 p.m. and responded to the 5500 block of Kiowa Drive. Witnesses called authorities to report a body in the water.

The San Diego County's Department of the Medical Examiner has taken possession of the body. Details on an identity or cause of death were not immediately available.

Police are continuing their investigation on the matter.

NBC 7 reached out to Lt. Miriam Foxx with the CVPD to see if there were any links to Maya Millete’s case with the body found at Lake Murray. Foxx said that based on initial reports, investigators did not think the body was that of the missing Chula Vista mom.
