MOUNT HOLLY, N.C. (AP) — Two kayakers have found a man’s body floating in the Catawba River near Mount Holly.

Mount Holly Police Chief Don Roper says officials are working to identify the body found around 3 p.m. Tuesday.

Roper says the body was fully clothed and there were no obvious signs of trauma.

An autopsy was planned Wednesday to determine the cause of death.

It took about 90 minutes to recover the body.
