DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Police have identified the 60-year-old man whose body was recovered from the Des Moines River last week.

Authorities say Leonard Dawson’s body was pulled from the river Thursday afternoon near the Southeast 14th Street bridge in Des Moines.

Police say Dawson, who lived in Des Moines, was reported missing by his family earlier this month.

Authorities have not released an official cause of death but they say there were no obvious signs of injury. The Polk County Medical Examiner’s Office is doing an autopsy.
