NEW ORLEANS- New Orleans Police have found a body in Lake Pontchartrain near the University of New Orleans campus.

Shortly before 11 a.m., witnesses say the body was floating face-up in the water and bystanders were crying as it was pulled out of the water.

Authorities have not identified the body to determine whether it is that of 21-year-old Ksanwy Chavez, who went missing Tuesday after trying to rescue a friend.

Swimming in the lake is prohibited.
