Body found in Columbia River near Vantage

Posted: Updated:

VANTAGE, Wash. (AP) - The Grant County coroner is trying to identify a body found Saturday in the Columbia River south of the I-90 bridge near Vantage.

The sheriff's office says the body was spotted by a boater and recovered by a Kittitas County marine unit.

Because the body had apparently been in the water a long time, it was sent to the King County medical examiner's office in Seattle for autopsy.
