Authorities are working to determine the identity of a body found in the Mississippi River near the Riverwalk Saturday.

Harbor Police received word of a male body in the water around Spanish Plaza Saturday.

The call came in after two o' clock in the afternoon.

It was not immediately clear if the body may be one of three people missing after a towboat sank a week earlier.

The Orleans Parish Coroner's Office is investigating.
