Halton police have identified a body that was found in a frozen creek in Burlington Tuesday.

There was a heavy police presence in the area of Grahams Lane and Legion Road, where the body was located at around 1:30 p.m.

“Our detectives were here earlier this afternoon and we’ve discovered what we believe to be a body that is submerged under the ice in a viaduct,” Inspector Ivan L'Ortye said.

Police confirmed that the deceased was a 22-year-old female who had been missing since Sunday.

"Her death does not appear suspicious in nature," police said in a tweet.

The investigation is now with the coroner, according to police.
