EAU CLAIRE, WI (WTAQ) - A body was pulled Monday from the Chippewa River in Eau Claire.
Police said canoeists spotted what appeared to be a body near the Short Street Bridge around 5:50 p.m.
Fire Department rescuers launched a boat, and recovered the body about 40 minutes later about a quarter-mile from the bridge. There was no word on the person’s identity.
WQOW-TV of Eau Claire said police did not have a report of a missing person in the area since April – when UW-Eau Claire student David Rodgers vanished after going into the Chippewa River.
