Authorities are withholding the identity of a body found in the Ochlockonee River late Sunday night.

Around 7:00 Sunday a group of residents walking near the bank of the river saw what appeared to be a cushion, but upon a closer look discovered it was a body.

Gadsden County deputies are not releasing details of the investigation or the name of the victim.

Residents who discovered the body say it was a surreal experience.

Michael Bair said, "It was out of the dark that we stumbled upon it. It looked like a boat cushion or seat out of a car, and when we got closer it was a female body."

Authorities have an idea who the victim is but are waiting for more information before releasing the name.

If you have any information about this incident, please contact the Gadsden Sheriff's Office at 850-627-9233.
