The Dallas Police Department said a body was found along the 1200 block of Presidio Avenue at about 10 a.m. The Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office identified the body as missing 24-year-old D'Lisa Kelley late Friday afternoon.

Dallas police confirm that a body found Friday morning has been identified as a pregnant mother who had been missing for a week.

The Dallas Police Department said a body was found along the 1200 block of Presidio Avenue at about 10 a.m. The Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office identified the body as missing 24-year-old D'Lisa Kelley late Friday afternoon. 

Kelley was last seen on March 7, according to police. She was supposed to be attending a wake in Dallas that day, but never showed up.

The Facebook page "Help Find Lisa"  - set up by members of Kelley's family - states that she was pregnant and had a son.

Kelley's sister told police that the 24-year-old accidentally called her the day she disappeared. Kelley's sister said there was an argument on the other line of the call.

"We are concerned due to the fact that there was an unintended phone call," said Maj. Robert Sherwin with Dallas police. "A conversation that her sister heard where she's arguing with someone and then no one sees her. That's obviously a concern to the police department."

Lt. Max Geron, with the Dallas Police Department, tweeted that Kelley's death is now a homicide investigation.

A cause of death has not been determined.
