LOS ANGELES (NEWS1130) – Relatives of a missing Vancouver woman have been notified about the body found on the roof of a Los Angeles hotel.

The Los Angeles Police Department has confirmed the body found in a water tank is that of Elisa Lam from Vancouver.

Earlier today aerial shots from LA newscasts showed firefighters on top one of the tanks.

Elisa Lam, 21, went missing at the end of January. Just last week, a video turned up showing her acting strangely in an elevator at the Cecil Hotel.

Bernard Diaz lives in the hotel. He told KTLA that he heard a disturbing sound around the time the UBC student went missing. “It was so strong, I fell out of bed. Then the following day the water system was all plugged up.”

The taps at the hotel have been shut off. Those living there are being offered bottled water.

Lam was last seen near the hotel which many people say is in a shady area of the city.
