A body found inside of a vehicle removed from a Florida river on Friday is confirmed to be a missing piano teacher who vanished in January, Fort Lauderdale police said in a news release.
Lisa “Noodles” Hayden-Gordon’s vehicle was located early Friday morning in the New River of Cooley’s Landing after volunteers from Team Watters Sonar Search and Recovery Inc. scanned the waterway using sonar equipment.
The vehicle, a faded blue 2003 Hyundai Elantra, was removed from the water by members of the Fort Lauderdale Police Department Dive Team.
Hayden Gordon, 52, was last seen January 24 after attending a concert in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
Police are not releasing any further information and say their investigation remains active and on-going.
Anyone who has information about the case is urged to contact the Fort Lauderdale Police Department at 954-764-HELP (4357).
