Orlando Missing Mom Found in Lake

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) _ Central Florida officials say a body found in a lake is presumed to be that of a woman who went missing after walking her three children to school.

Orange County Sheriff’s officials say 40-year-old Lois Garcia Wilmeth was last seen Tuesday morning. Her husband reported her missing after she didn’t return home after walking their children to schools less than a mile from their Lake Nona home.

The Orlando Sentinel (http://thesent.nl/xcMjFa ) reports a deputy spotted the body Wednesday as he retraced the woman’s steps with one of her children.

Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings says the woman’s husband told them she had been suffering depression. The family had recently moved to central Florida from Venezuela.

The body was taken to the medical examiner’s office for an autopsy.
