RIVERSIDE (FOX19) -

Authorities recovered a body found in debris in the Ohio River.

Officers say that the body of a white male was found in the river in the 3600 block of River Road in Riverside near the U.S. Coast Guard station.

"It has been in the river for some time," says Sgt. Mike Miller with Cincinnati's Homicide Unit. "It is unclear at the moment for how long. As soon as they extricate the body, we will work on identification." 

The partially submerged body was found by workers of the Destiny Yacht Charters Inc. Miller says the body was discovered in a debris field wedged between the boat and the dock. 

Workers who found the body immediately called authorities. 

Little information is known at this time. FOX19 will continue to update the story as details become available.
