Divers from the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office are recovering a body from the Stillaguamish River between Arlington and Darrington.
Late last night, a sheriff’s deputy located the vehicle of a missing person reported to the Marysville Police Department along state Highway 530, the sheriff’s office said. A search of the area by the sheriff’s helicopter and search-and-rescue crews was launched early this morning and the body was spotted in the water around 11 a.m.
The sheriff’s Technical Water Rescue and Dive Team was sent in to recover the body due to the conditions of the water.
The vehicle belongs to a 71-year-old Marysville man who was reported missing Monday by family members after he failed to return from a fishing trip to Oso.
Identification of the victim, as well as cause and manner of death, are pending from the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.
