GLENWOOD, Iowa (AP) — A body found earlier this month in the Missouri River in southwest Iowa has been identified as that of a Council Bluffs man.

Authorities identified him as 49-year-old Robert Jensen. His body was found around 4:45 p.m. on July 1 in the river at Lincoln's Landing campground, near the U.S. Highway 34 bridge that connects Mills County to Plattsmouth, Nebraska.

Relatives of Jensen contacted law enforcement after reading some reports about tattoos on the body.

Jensen's death is still being investigated.
