Evanston police and fire units responded to the lakefront at Garden Park in south Evanston about 4 p.m. Thursday and recovered a body from the lake.

Police Cmdr. Ryan Glew says the police department and the medical examiner’s office are conducting an investigation of the death.

The identity of the victim has not been released, and Glew says he can’t comment on whether the body is that of Elise Malary, a 31-year-old Evanston woman who’s been missing since last Friday.
