PORT KELLEY, Wash-- A body is found Saturday on the Columbia River near Port Kelley.

The Benton County Coroner has identified the body as 28-year-old Nathan Seeley of California. He was believed to be living in the Tri-Cities and has friends and family in the area.

Seeley was reported missing about ten days ago. The coroner says his fully clothed body had been in the river between five and ten days.

He also says there are no obvious signs of foul play and an autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

A boater spotted the body just before five p.m. Saturday and Columbia Basin Dive Rescue was called out shortly after.
