Missing teen found dead in car in bayou



It's not the news that family and friends wanted. 

The NOPD dive team has pulled a body from a car found in the water in Irish Bayou near the I-10 Twin Spans.  That's the area where they have been looking for a missing 19-year-old.  Hayley Howard has been missing since Saturday.

Authorities this evening confirmed it was Howard's body they found.

Howard last was seen early Saturday morning after dropping a friend off at the University of New Orleans. She got a flat tire in the UNO area and told her boyfriend that "nice people" helped her change it and she would be heading toward Slidell.

More than a hundred people met Wednesday in Slidell to organize the foot portion of the search, which went five miles in every direction from the cell tower.

New Orleans Police say Howard was "last observed intoxicated in her vehicle" Saturday.
