ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a man’s body has been pulled from the water in Albuquerque where the North Diversion channel meets the Rio Grande.

The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department reported spotting the body about 4:15 p.m. Monday.

Albuquerque police say the body hasn’t been identified yet and the cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner’s office.

The discovery comes two days after crews came up empty-handed in the search for a person reportedly swept away in a flooded arroyo.

The sheriff’s department is investigating the incident along with the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs.
