ST. LOUIS Р Authorities say a body found in the Mississippi River in St. Louis was that of a 22-year-old man.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the St. Louis medical examiner’s office identified the man Wednesday as Shelbe Davis. The St. Louis Fire Department worked Friday with divers and a boat with sonar equipment to search the river after surveillance cameras showed a car driving into the river.

Capt. Leon Whitener says barge workers found the body floating near the barge Monday and called police.
