UPDATE: Dive Team Finds Spokane Man Drowned In Stevens County

UPDATE:

STEVENS COUNTY, Wash. - The Stevens County Sheriff's Department confirmed with KHQ on Sunday that they have located the 21-year-old who drowned on the Little Spokane River Friday night.
 
Stevens County Sgt. Caruso says the man was found in about 10 feet of water Sunday afternoon. He was not wearing a life jacket.

Because of the current, the Sheriff's Department asked Avista if they could lower the water levels in the river to that they could retrieve the body.

Sgt. Caruso wanted to acknowledge the joint effort between the Stevens County Sheriff's Office, the Stevens County Dive Team, the Spokane Tribal Police, and Avista for their help in the search.
