Reno authorities say a body has been found in the Truckee River.

Washoe County Sheriff's Office spokesman Bob Harmon says a swimmer spotted the body Saturday afternoon in the river near Spice Island Drive.

Deputies, along with police from Reno and Sparks, located the body of a male on the south bank of the river.

Harmon did not release any further details about the body or the circumstances of the man's death.

The sheriff's office is leading the investigation, which remains ongoing.
