MISSING STUDENT: Patricia Guardado
  • MISSING STUDENT: Patricia Guardado
The sheriff's office reports the body of a woman was found floating in a pond near Sweet Home off Highway 365 about midday Sunday. The body was found by fishermen.

UPDATE: Family members have told several news outlets, including Channel 4, that the body has been identified as that of Patricia Guardado, a UALR student last seen leaving home for school Wednesday morning. Her car was found in a parking lot of a Burger King across University Avenue from the campus. Little Rock officials had said they feared foul play.

Little Rock police held a 1 p.m. news conference at which the missing woman was confirmed as the victim found in the pond. Lt. Terry Hastings said the cause of death hasn't been determined and police have no leads on a suspect. A tip line has been set up for people with information — 501-580-8706 — and rewards from both city and county crimestopper programs are being offered for information.

She was last seen leaving her home in Southwest Little Rock at 8:45 a.m. last Wednesday. Police said they have found no surveillance cameras on the commercial strip in sight of where she parked her car. "We need the public's help," Hastings said.

A bilingual rosary service will be said for Guardado at 7 p.m. (not 8 as originally announced) tonight at St. Edward's Catholic Church.

The Democrat-Gazette reported online Monday morning that Guardado's mother had been asked to go to the county morgue to see if she could identify the woman. A family member told Channel 4 that the body was identified from fingerprints.
