Authorities Recover Body From River

AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Authorities in Ames say emergency responders have recovered the body of a man reported missing in the Skunk River.

Public safety officials say the body was recovered about 6:45 p.m. Wednesday, roughly four hours after receiving a report that a man became separated from an inner tube while floating on the river with a group near Carr Park. They didn't release the man's name until relatives could be notified.

Police, firefighters, medics and the Story County Dive Team responded and searched the river and riverbanks.

Sgt. Christine Crippen with the Ames Police Department says several days of rain have created high water, swift currents and murky conditions. She encouraged people to stay out of rivers until the waters recede.
