A 61-year-old Troy woman was found drowned in a lake near her home in the Emerald Lakes subdivision, near Square Lake and John R roads, just before 7:45 a.m. April 5.

Police said she had sent a text message at about 11 p.m. April 4 stating that she was searching for a dog. It was not clear to whom she had sent the message.

Troy police Sgt. Meghan Lehman said the woman, who lived with her sister, was dog sitting.

A neighbor found the woman’s body, Lehman said. The lake has no beach, making it easy to fall in, Lehman said.

Police believe her death was accidental.

The dog had returned home, according to police.
