A body was pulled yesterday from the Chippewa River in Eau Claire.

Police said canoeists spotted what appeared to be a body near the Short Street Bridge around 5:50 p-m. Fire Department rescuers launched a boat, and recovered the body about 40 minutes later about a quarter-mile from the bridge. There was no word on the person’s identity. Reports say police did not have a report of a missing person in the area since April – when U-W Eau Claire student David Rodgers vanished after going into the Chippewa River.
