WINFIELD, Mo. (AP) –  Investigators near the northeast Missouri community of Winfield were awaiting autopsy results on the body of a man found in the Mississippi River.

Authorities say the body was found about 7:15 pm  Thursday near the Winfield lock and dam.

Lincoln County Coroner Robert Shramek says it appears the man had been in the water less than a week.

The coroner says he knows the man’s identity but was publicly withholding that until relatives were notified.

An autopsy was planned for Friday in St. Louis County.
