OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma City police say the body of a woman found near Lake Overholser is not that of a missing and pregnant Bethany woman. Sergeant Paco Balderrama says the woman's body was found shortly before 9:30 Tuesday morning by a youth group holding a prayer service at the lake.

He says the cause of death hasn't been determined but it is being treated as a homicide. The body was found a few miles from a park where the car of missing 20-year-old Lauren Barnes was found Sunday but Balderrama says they body is not Barnes.

He says the body has not been identified but is a 45- to 55-year-old woman.

Barnes is five months pregnant and was last seen Friday after telling her family she was going to meet a friend.
