REPORTS OF A BODY
Just one week after Ariana went missing, police received a report of a dead body in a remote area.
According to The Times of Northwest Indiana, the information had been released about a body being located near Lake Street and 15th Avenue in Gary, Indiana.
The "body" had been wrapped up in a sheet, police said.
Officials said an investigation was initiated at approximately 2.40pm on April 10 following a report of a body in a grassy area.
The report was made when a working NIPSCO employee called 911, The Lake County coroner's office said.
However, the investigation was later confirmed to be a "false alarm," Coroner David Pastrick stated.
Officials said late Sunday that the "body" in question was ultimately determined to be a "life-sized silicone/rubber type female doll."
According to Fox 32 Chicago, Lake County Coroner David J. Pastrick stated: "On Sunday… the Lake County Coroner’s Office responded to what we were advised of being a death scene.
"Lake County Dispatch was notified by a Nipsco employee doing work in the area of 15th Ave and Lake St in the city of Gary.
"The investigation turned out to be a false alarm. The body turned out to be not human and was a lifelike mannequin."
On April 5, Gary PD said a foot search was conducted around where the vehicle crashed, along with an aerial search by the Lake County Sheriff helicopter.
The police stated: "The Lake County Sheriff's Department took a missing persons report for Ariana on the evening of April 3, 2022 from her residence in their jurisdiction.
"Ariana Taylor was then reported missing to the Gary Police Department on April 4, 2022.
"Officer foot searches, K-9 searches, helicopter, ATV and dive searches have been conducted with no results. Area hospitals were contacted, also with no results."
Ariana's mom was the first to report her missing as she last saw her daughter before she left for a girl's night out, NBC 5 reports.

According to Ariana's family, the missing woman's wallet, cell phone, and car keys were missing at the time of the crash.
Although Ariana is still missing, her mom continues to hoping for the best.
She told NBC 5: "We're gonna continue our search, and we're gonna continue making flyers and letting the communities know all over.
Kevin Collins, along with his bodyguard company, is also helping in the search for Ariana.
Collins said: "Spread her picture, you know, stop at the businesses. You know, just that, you know? Pretty much, that could help us out.”
Members of Ariana's family have revealed some bloody articles of clothing located nearby the crash scene.
A piece of Ariana's jewelry was also reported to be found.
