The wet team from the Des Moines Fire Department was called out after a body was found in the Des Moines River Friday afternoon.

The man's body was spotted by a woman near the Grand Avenue River Bridge in downtown Des Moines.

The wet team recovered the body and police say it had likely been in the river for a few days. Though identification was found on the body, officers are not releasing the identity until it has been confirmed through an autopsy, and until the man's family has been notified.
