Two Albany Police officers watch from the bow of a boat Wednesday afternoon as Albany Fire Department personnel and a Linn County Sheriff's Office diver remove a body from the brush in the Willamette River downstream from Monteith Riverpark.

Public safety agencies gathered at Takena Landing and are investigating after a body was discovered in brush Wednesday afternoon in the Willamette River at Albany.

The body was found by a boater at about 1 p.m., according to the Albany Police Department.

The death appears to be unconnected to the recent heat wave, as the body had been in the water for a lengthy amount of time, according to an APD supervisor.

No identification had been made at about 2 p.m.
