OTTUMWA, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say they have found the body of a swimmer missing in the Des Moines River near Ottumwa.

KTVO-TV reports searchers found the body of 25-year-old Michael Chrisman on Thursday morning, about a mile downstream from where he jumped into the water Monday evening. A searcher in an Eldon Fire Department boat spotted the body along the bank of the river.

Wapello County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Don Phillips says searchers in four or five boats were searching when the body was located.

Authorities say Chrisman was using a rope to swing over the river Monday evening. Friends saw him enter the water, but he didn’t resurface.

The river has been running high due to weekend rains.
