A body was found floating in the San Diego River Wednesday morning, the San Diego Police Department (SDPD) confirmed.
Police officers received a call from someone just before 3:30 a.m. reporting that they had seen the person in the river Tuesday, but thought that person was swimming. The witness spotted the person in the water again early Wednesday but said that this time, it appeared the person wasn’t moving.
Officers and San Diego Lifeguard officials responded to the area of the San Diego River near Friars Road and Morena Boulevard and confirmed the body had been located floating in the water at around 7:10 a.m.
Crews had to walk down a bike path to spot the body.
At this point, police do not have any reason to believe the person’s death is suspicious. The San Diego County Medical Examiner’s office will determine the person’s cause and manner of death.
No further details were immediately released.
