Angelique Christine Lepsch, 48, was last seen leaving her home on the 6500 block of Oakley Drive NE in Fridley at around 4:30 p.m. on Nov. 14., according to Minneapolis and Fridley police departments.

A Facebook page created for information related to Lepsch’s disappearance issued an update Nov. 19 saying Lepsch has been found dead. Minneapolis Police Department confirmed Monday that Lepsch's family has been notified of her death. 

The Hennepin County Sheriff's Office  confirmed to Bring Me The News that a water patrol team recovered a body from the Mississippi River.
