More details should be available Monday about a person that was found dead on an island in the Colorado River over the weekend.

The Sheriff's Office is expected to release more information today after the body of a man was found in the river Saturday.

Officials say it appears the body had been in the water for a few days.

Two transients spotted the body and called 9–1–1.
