Sneaker with human foot found on Florida beach

A beachgoer taking a New Year's Day walk in southern Martin County found a sneaker containing a human foot, authorities said.

The woman was walking at Peck Lake Park, near Hobe Sound on the north end of Jupiter Island, around noon Wednesday when she found the shoe under some sea grass, the Palm Beach Post reported.

Martin County dog, foot patrol and air units searched the area but found nothing else, sheriff's spokeswoman Christine Weiss said.

She said the foot was taken to a crime lab and the sheriff's office was "working with several agencies to determine if they have missing persons."
