The body recovered Friday from the Chicago River was identified as Karina Peña Alanís, a pregnant mother who was last seen two weeks ago, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office reported Saturday morning.

According to authorities, Peña Alanís’ body was found in the river at 2701 S. Damen Ave. at 7:50 a.m. Friday. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials said it was the fourth body to be recovered from a body of water in Chicago in a week.

Peña Alanís, a 31-year-old mother of three, was last seen in the 4300 block of S. Wood St., in the Barrio de las Empacadoras area.

The circumstances of her death were unclear.
