Tacoma police and firefighters recovered a body from the Puyallup River on Wednesday.
Firefighters responded to a call of the body being seen under a bridge over the river on the Tideflats about 2 p.m., Tacoma Fire spokesman Joe Meinecke said.
Officials had not yet identified the body, Meinecke said.
Pierce County medical examiners will conduct an autopsy on the body, Meinecke said.
An examiner said Wednesday night that the body was that of a male, but they had not positively identified him.
