KEOKUK, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a body has been found in a stolen vehicle pulled from the Des Moines River west of Keokuk in Lee County.

Officials had been searching for the vehicle after a missing man had been seen in the area Saturday morning. They found tire tracks leading into the river and then the SUV in about 15 feet of water. A tow truck was used to recover the vehicle Sunday evening.

Authorities haven’t released the man’s name. An autopsy has been ordered.
