A passerby found a man's body floating in Como Lake in St. Paul Sunday afternoon, according to reports.

The body was in the same area investigators were searching for a missing St. Paul man a few weeks ago, Howie Padilla, a St. Paul police spokesman, told the Pioneer Press.

It is not known if the body is that of the missing man, however FOX 9 reports that police said the man is from St. Paul.

Police are waiting to announce the identity of the man until the Ramsey County Medical Examiner confirms it, KSTP says. If it does end up being the missing man, Padilla told FOX 9 that "Maybe this is one step closer to getting closure for his loved ones."
