MOUNT PLEASANT -- Sunday morning Mount Pleasant police found a body in a pond near Oakes Road and Durand Avenue.

Mount Pleasant police received a request from Fox Lake Police in Illinois to check on the welfare of a person who had been missing for more than a day.

Police say cell tower information along with information from the person's family led them to a retention pond often used for fishing.

Police found the individual's vehicle near the pond and after searching the area also found a body partially submerged.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner is working to determine the cause of death.

Police say the initial investigation does not reveal anything suspicious.
