UPDATE: The dive team has pulled the body out of the lake.

OMAHA (KPTM) - Police are investigating a body found in a west Omaha lake Wednesday night.

A witness called the Omaha Police Department around 5:30 to report a "possible body" in Lawrence Youngman Lake Park located at 192nd and West Dodge Road.

FOX 42'S Maureen Wurtz was first on the scene.

OPD sent cruisers and a helicopter to investigate. Dive teams are heading into the lake to retrieve the body.

Police have not said if the body is that of 63-year-old Che Dreessen whose car was found in the same lake on November 3rd last year. The keys were still in the car, but she was not around.

No foul play was suspected when Dreessen's family reported her missing. The family says they hope the body is her.
