BAYAN LEPAS: The body of a woman, whose face was covered, was found floating in waters near a condominium complex in Queensbay here this afternoon.

Several construction workers stumbled upon the body of the woman, thought to be in her 50s, at about 1.30pm, before they alerted the police.

Southwest district police chief Superintendent Anuar Omar said the woman was fully-clothed, and there were slippers on her feet, when she was found.

"We have yet to identify the woman, as there were no identification papers on her.

"The remains have been sent to the Balik Pulau Hospital for a post-mortem," he said.

Anuar urged anyone with a missing family member to lodge a report with the police immediately.
