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.
Never miss a local story.
An examiner said Wednesday night that the body was that of a male, but they had not positively identified him.
