(ABC 6 News) -- The body of a female has been recovered from Silver Lake in Rochester.

Rochester police tell ABC 6 the discovery was made during the search of a woman reported missing earlier in the day.

Police say while searching for Dawn Ehret, they went to Silver Lake, as that was the last area she was known to be.

At around 3:50 pm, while at Silver Lake, police say they saw a body in the water, which they were able to recover a short time later.

 "There does not appear to be any foul play or trauma to the body that would indicate a homicide or serious assault," Lt. Casey Moilanen said. "But we're still going to conduct a thorough investigation so the person didn't die at the hands of somebody else."

Police were clear to say at this time they are not making a connection between the missing persons case of Dawn Ehret and the body found in the lake.
