LOS ANGELES, Calif. (KCBS) -- The body of a missing Canadian tourist was found Tuesday in a water tank on top of a hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

Elisa Lam was last seen at the hotel on Jan. 26.

A maintenance worker discovered the body after hotel guests complained of low water pressure in the building.

The news was troubling to guests at the hotel.

"It's disgusting, water I drank and brushed my teeth with," one person staying at the hotel said.

No hazardous materials were found in the water, according to the fire department.
