JUPITER — The body of a missing 23-year-old Palm Beach Gardens woman has been found in a Jupiter pond.

Authorities say the search for Chanel Farrel Phillips ended Tuesday when a police officer spotted tire tracks leading from a road into a pond. Phillips was last seen early Saturday morning at a Palm Beach Gardens bar. Her family reported her missing Monday morning.

Divers found the woman's 2001 Cadillac Deville in the pond. Her body was inside.

The Palm Beach Post (http://bit.ly/16FFcib ) reports no foul play is suspected. The incident is being investigated as a single vehicle crash.

Phillips' mother told the newspaper her daughter messaged a friend on Facebook about 4 a.m. Saturday, saying she'd just dropped off a friend and was on her way home.
