GRANT PARISH, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - The Grant Parish Sheriff's Office said they received a report of a body in Little River on Tuesday.

They found the body of a white female floating in the water near Lonnie's Landing south of Pollock. 

At this point they have not been able to identify her and her description does not match any missing persons reports in the immediate area.

Investigators have not released a cause of death at this time.

"We got a call yesterday afternoon from some fisherman that discovered a body floating in Little River and deputies responded.  We recovered the body and it's been sent for an autopsy," Sheriff Steven McCain said.

Deputies continue to search for clues to what happened to the woman. They hope to be able to identify her in the next few days.

The Grant Parish Sheriff's Office is requesting the help of the public in identifying the woman.

She is described as being between 50 and 65 years-old with hair that has been dyed reddish-brown. Her original hair color might be strawberry blond. She weighs between 135 and 140 pounds and is about 5'5" tall.

If you have any information regarding who the woman is, call the Grant Parish Sheriff's Office. Their phone number is (318) 627-3261.
