SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Police in central Utah are investigating after a body washed up on along the Green River.

Authorities said Thursday that the woman was 48-year-old Michelle Marie Went of Green River, who was last seen on Oct. 3.

Emery County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating how Went died and how she ended up in the river.

Went was found on Oct. 29 by a man boating on the river about 165 miles south of Salt Lake City.

She was positively identified after a friend saw news reports about the body and called police.
