Deputies with the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office located a deceased body submerged in the Nisqually River on Tuesday afternoon.
Deputies were originally dispatched to a report of a missing person at an address in the Nisqually Pines area, just outside of Yelm. When they began to search, they quickly located the person deceased in the river. The person is believed to have lived in the area, according to scanner traffic.
The Thurston County Dive Team was called out to assist with recovery of the body. The Thurston County Coroner’s Office was also dispatched.
We are withholding additional information until the deceased person’s family are able to be notified and deputies and the Coroner’s Office are able to continue their investigation.
