Authorities had received an anonymous tip that her body was in the canal.

They have not released any further details about the investigation or a potential suspect.

Russell, who is a single mother of two girls, had arrived at her aunt's house in Miami Gardens on May 15, so she could pick up one of her daughters and take her to a gym class.

Her aunt had seen her black Audi drive up the driveway of the house along NW 203rd Street and 15th Avenue but was worried when she never came in to get her daughter.

Russell & # 39; s family promptly reported that she was missing and said it was unlike her to disappear.
