ASOTIN COUNTY, Wash. -

With the help of Spokane County Dive Teams, Asotin County deputies continued their search on the Snake River after a "suspicious" tip.

Investigators say about a month ago they received a tip from two fisherman. Investigators say the fisherman's anchor was getting caught on something at the bottom of the river. When they pulled anchor investigators describe them seeing what appeared to be a body wrapped in "tarp like" material. As the object was pulled to the surface investigators say it unhooked from the anchor and fell back in to the water.

Deputies say the water search is focused between the confluence and the Port Of Wilma along the river in Clarkston. Investigators say the search has been on going for about a month and deputies have been on the water for the past 5 days. There has been speculation by some the search could be related to Rachael Anderson. Asotin County Sheriff Captain Dan Hally would not discuss the "ongoing" Anderson investigation but says there is nothing indicting the search is related. Anderson went missing 3 years go from Clarkston. Her body has never been found. Her ex-husband Charles Capone and his alleged accomplice David Stone will stand trial for her murder next year.

Hally says there are anywhere from 5-10 missing Persons cases between the Lewiston and Clarkson area. Hally says they have no information other than the tip from the two fisherman.
