Police looking to see if foot found is linked to missing person cases

MARTIN COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - We're waiting to hear from the Martin County Sheriff's Office the identity of a human foot found Wednesday on a beach.

Investigators say they found a shoe matching the shoe that was on the foot. It looks like both shoes were in the water for a short time.

The sheriff's office is now using DNA samples to see if the appendage is tied to any homicides or missing person cases.
