Authorities say searchers found the body of Andrew Remley Friday, a week after the 26-year-old fell into the St. Croix River at a boat launch in Taylors Falls.

Darkness and the high, fast-moving water level on the St. Croix caused a suspension of the search last week.

A statement from the Chisago County Sheriff's office says it was the National Park Service that spotted Remley's body south of Rock Island Friday afternoon. The lower St. Croix is a National Scenic Riverway administered by the Park Service.

The sheriff's office said Remley was standing on an angled rock on the riverbank when he lost his balance and fell into the swift current.

The Star Tribune says Remley, who lived in Chisago City, was taking a photo with his girlfriend and two young children near the launch point used by Taylors Falls Scenic Boat Tours when he slipped.

Water still high on the St. Croix

Some of the St. Croix's boat landings – including William O'Brien State Park and the Wisconsin side of Interstate State Park – are closed because of the high water level and treacherous current.

The Park Service has web pages listing the status of boat landings and the current river conditions.
