PLEASANT HILL, Iowa (AP) - Authorities have identified a body found in the Des Moines River.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office says the body of 32-year-old Bobby Lee Long was spotted floating in the Des Moines River on Friday. He was pulled from the river in Yellow Banks Park just southeast of Pleasant Hill.

Additional information about Long’s death was not released.

Authorities have been investigating a separate report earlier this month of a man seen in the Des Moines River yelling for help. The person was never found. Authorities say they’re investigating whether Long was that man.
