Police have confirmed the body recovered from a vehicle found submerged in a Waikato lake is that of missing woman Kim Richmond.

Foul play has not been ruled out but the cause of her death is yet to be determined.

The ute, which belonged to Ms Richmond, was pulled out of Lake Arapuni by a crane on Thursday morning.

Ms Richmond suddenly disappeared from her home on July 31 last year.

Her identity was confirmed on Friday night, Detective Senior Sergeant Ross Patterson said.

Police have not said what led them to search the lake for the vehicle.
