WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police say a body recovered Friday from a pond in the Love Grove community is an elderly woman who went missing in early November.

Detectives say the age, sex, race and height of the person, as well as the clothing and other personal items found at the scene tell them it is Alma Lawson. The 83-year-old, who lived nearby, disappeared November 4.

Based on the autopsy this morning, the medical examiner’s office has ruled that the death was an accidental drowning.
