Deputies say they don’t suspect foul play in Foster’s death.

Authorities recovered the car after boaters reported striking an obstruction in the water. Surveillance footage from a boat ramp showed Foster’s car drive into the water, less than half a mile from her home.

Foster was last seen Feb. 13 in Tampa, where she visited two bars and sang karaoke after work.
