UPDATE 2-24

Gadsden County deputies have recovered a body from the Ochlockonee River in Gadsden County.

Our cameras were the only ones rolling when the body was removed from the water.

Major Shawn Wood says,"Right now, we don't know what we have, so it's one of those things were when we figure out what we have we're going in making sure they preserve evidence if there is any, but we are really trying to figure out what we have now, so it's going to take a little bit.

Investigators won't say if or when an autopsy will be performed on the body. We will continue to follow this story and update you.
