The body of a man believed to have committed suicide by jumping from Royal Gorge Bridge on Monday was recovered Thursday from the Arkansas River.
The man’s identity wasn’t released because relatives hadn’t been notified.
Cañon City Police Capt. Allen Cooper said an abandoned car was found parked at the bridge. Cooper said police didn’t find a note.
Police began searching the canyon and the river Monday evening after a witness reported seeing someone jump from the middle of the bridge.
Commercial rafters found the body yesterday in a remote part of the river close to the Pueblo County line about 30 miles downstream from the bridge.
