NEW ORLEANS - Authorities said searchers found the body of a missing UNO student Wednesday inside her car, which had been submerged in Irish Bayou outside of New Orleans.

Friends and family of 19-year-old Hayley Howard have been searching for the student since she went missing Saturday. Authorities focused their efforts in the area of Irish Bayou since it was one of the last areas they were able to track her cell phone.

Police said they believe she veered off the side of the road and into the water.
