Posted: Updated:

GRANDVIEW, Wash. - Yakima County Search and Rescue teams pulled the body of a man from the Yakima River this afternoon. 

Yakima County Sheriff's Deputies said Tony Arroyo led them on chase Friday night then crashed his car near the river.  They said he then jumped into the river to try to get away from deputies.  Search teams looked for the body, but called the search off after they couldn't find the man.

The man's family said they don't believe what Sheriff's say.  They found Arroyo's body early this morning and notified authorities.
