ENDERBY - A woman's body was recovered from the Shuswap River yesterday afternoon. 

The discovery came after a 61-year-old woman from Enderby was reported missing to the police earlier that day, around noon, RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Janelle Shoihet says in a media release.

The investigation led police to Tuey Park in Enderby, Shoihet says. Given the large area, Vernon Search and Rescue was asked to aid in the search. Shortly after 1 p.m., the woman’s body was located just off the shore of the river.

The woman’s death is not considered suspicious and the RCMP is now supporting the B.C. Coroners Service in its investigation. 

Vernon Search and Rescue spokesperson Trevor Honigman said the team was called to assist the RCMP for a “task” on the Shuswap River Wednesday, March 28. Roughly a dozen volunteers spent a number of hours on and around the river before completing the search.
