TACOMA — A body was recovered from the Puyallup River on Saturday, and authorities believe it is a 29-year-old man who went missing last month while floating the river on an inner tube.

The Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office has not yet identified the body.

The News Tribune of Tacoma reports two fishermen found the body snagged on a log as they were setting up to fish along the riverbank on Levee Road in Fife.
