CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — Officials say a body found in a rain-swollen Cedar Rapids stream may be that of a missing kayaker.

The man’s body was pulled from Indian Creek on Thursday afternoon. Officials on the scene couldn’t verify that it was that of 34-year-old John Conley.

His wife, 30-year-old Samantha Conley was rescued Monday from the stream after their kayak overturned. The body was found less than a mile downstream.

Tests will be conducted to confirm the victim’s identity.
