The U.S. Coast Guard's marine unit recovered a body from the water, closer to Windsor's shore. It happened around noon near Russell Street in Sandwich Town, not far from General Brock Public School.
Police said the body was that of a female in her 50s. She had no identification on her.
The woman is described as white with grey hair, wearing a grey sweater, blue jeans and white running shoes.
Police also released photos of a bright pink watch the woman was wearing, and a key chain that has two keys on it.
