Officials confirmed on Tuesday that a woman whose body was discovered in Falls Lake in January drowned.

Tierra Mann, 35, disappeared in December along with 70-year-old Carl Adams.

Both were discovered near an SUV in the water near the Hickory Hill boat ramp.

A report says investigators believe the SUV rolled down the ramp by accident.

Alcohol and cocaine found in her system are believed to have played a role in the incident.

Family members had said the couple, who had an 11-year-old child, disappeared at the same time.
