ADDISON (KRLD) - The vehicle of Brenda Lizbeth Montanez, who went missing Jan. 27 in Log Cabin, Texas, has been located in a lake, Henderson County authorities tell 1080 KRLD.

Dive teams discovered a female body inside the vehicle but they have not determined the victim's identity. The body has been sent to the Medical Examiner's office to be identified. 

The car was found off a boat ramp at Cedar Creek Lake, sheriff Botie Hillhouse tells KRLD. 

Hillhouse says Montanez was visiting her boyfriend at a cabin about two miles from the search area when she was last seen. She drove off into the night in an area that the sheriff says can be hazardous and confusing in the dark.
