Authorities are still working to identify a body that was found submerged in the Feather River in Oroville Saturday afternoon.

The body was discovered around 3:30 p.m. by a group of tubers, on the north side of an island, just east of Bedrock Park.

A Butte County Search and Rescue team was called to the scene and divers pulled the body out around 7 p.m.

Oroville Police Department Sgt. Ruben Quihuiz told Action News Now it is way too early to determine the cause of death, and said the department had not received any prior calls about divers or swimmers in distress.

The body was reportedly being held under water by several branches.
