Authorities recovered a body in the St. Croix River in Stillwater early Saturday afternoon, in the area where search crews have been looking for a missing woman for a week.
The body was found just north of downtown Stillwater by officials from the Stillwater Police Department and the Washington County Sheriff's Department, according to a news release from the sheriff's office.
Officials have not released any other information about the deceased, and said the Ramsey County medical examiner will perform an autopsy and release the person's identity, WCCO reports.
Searchers have been looking for Abby Russell, 24, on the ground, by air and in the river since she went missing from her home about a week ago.
Officials searched the St. Croix River with sonar equipment in several locations near Stillwater over the past week, but found no sign of her.
Police say Russell left her house on North Broadway Street shortly after midnight last Saturday morning. She was on foot, and left behind her keys, cellphone and identification.
Russell, who works as a server at Pub 112 in downtown Stillwater, moved to the river town a few weeks ago from Pensacola, Fla. She grew up in Fall Creek, Wis., near Eau Claire.
Sheriff's department officials say no other information will be released to the public until Monday.
