LE SUEUR, Minn. (AP) - Authorities have recovered a body believed to be that of a missing camper from the Minnesota River in south-central Minnesota.

Le Sueur (leh soor) County Sheriff Dave Tietz says searchers are confident they have found the body of 20-year-old Moriah Zwart. The 20-year-old Le Sueur woman has been missing since last Friday.

The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1DTcA4h ) reports the body was found Wednesday afternoon about 2-and-a-half miles north of the sandbar where Zwart was last seen by a friend who was camping with her.

The six-day search began after the friend lost track of Zwart and notified her parents.

The sheriff says foul play is not suspected, but alcohol use is.
