Body found in van pulled from Mississippi River

LECLAIRE (AP) -- A body has been found in a van that was pulled from the Mississippi River at LeClaire.

Authorities say police in Iowa City had been looking for the van, which was located in LeClaire by an Iowa State trooper early Sunday afternoon.

Before authorities could contact the driver of the van, he drove the van into the river.

It took about two hours for emergency crews and a tow truck to pull the van from the river.

The van was submerged in about 12 feet of water. The water temperature was 34 degrees.
